Locating DirectX content on “The Goods” from PDC

We’ve had a handful of PDC attendees contact us directly asking for help finding the DirectX related materials on the hard-drive that was handed out as part of “The Goods” at PDC.

If you look in this folder:

\Windows7\Windows_Whitepapers_and_HOLs\High-Fidelity Graphics and Media\DirectX

You will find:

  • Four white-papers about DirectX innovations in Windows 7, including introductions to Direct2D and DirectWrite
  • A zip file containing the source code and documentation for each module of the DirectX Hands-On-Lab that was available in the “the Big Room” at the conference.

As an aside, the code in the Hands-On-Lab includes the examples that Leonardo walked through on stage during our session.
