Robby and Me on Channel 9

We’re not nearly as entertaining as Don and Chris, but Robby and I are in another video on Channel 9 (our last one was on MSDN TV). This time we talk about our experiences with Windows programming, the web and the power/flexibility/extensibility of WPF. It was a fun conversation. Robby is giving a talk at…

Windows Live Messenger Beta Invite for WPF Sample Suggestion: wanna trade?

I have one Messenger Beta invite to give out and I’m always looking for WPF sample suggestions. So… I have no strict criteria. The first suggestion that makes me think “hmm, that looks interesting” wins. Tips: if it’s trivially simple or insanely complicated, you probably won’t get it.

A WinFX Bag-O-Tricks

It’s been pretty quiet around the office this week. I’ve had a chance to do some updating and clean-up on a bunch of samples that I’ve created over the last several months. I’ve decided to roll up all of my samples into one application. This will make it much easier to roll changes forward as…

WinFX Hex

I discovered the game Hex when I spent a semester in Australia my senior year of college. Taking the things I learned building Minesweeper, I thought I’d see how far I could get with Hex. I’m pretty happy with the results. (As with my first post of Minesweeper, this is a work in progress.) I…
