Managed DirectX 9 Kick Start : Graphics and Game Programming

Buy
Managed DirectX was released with the latest version of the core DirectX libraries in DirectX9. It enables developers using the new .NET languages (i.e. C#, VB.NET, etc.) to develop rich multimedia applications with DirectX. Unfortunately the Managed DirectX runtime was released without adequate documentation, and developers are having a hard time figuring out the best way to write managed applications. This book covers how to use the Managed DirectX objects, how they differ from the core DirectX libraries, and how to create these rich multimedia applications in C#. It also covers in depth graphics techniques and the new high-level shader language shipping with DirectX9.

DirectX is a rich multimedia API that gives developers the ability to write high-performance applications using a standardized set of interfaces. The first release of DirectX coincided with Windows 95, and was called the "Games SDK." Since then, more than eight new versions of the API have been released; however, these APIs were designed for developers who used C and C++. There was an entire group of developers who had no easy access to the functionality DirectX provided.
