Mark Harris has an example about using his
joystick in c#. Mark used Managed DirectX 1.1 which he mentions can be found at the
DirectX SDK website. His example is set for a 6-axis, 20+ buttoned joystick which reminds me of Steel Battalion's controller.
He goes on how to get additional axis…

About two months ago Dan Fernandez called me into his office and said, "You need to put together a Coding4Fun Holiday Guide." Okay. While not entirely sure what that meant I figured it would at least involve
some sort of gift wish list and some project ideas for the…
Brian Jepson, from Make Magazine, along with Szymon Kobalczyk posted about their chance to play with the FEZ line of .NET-Powered microcontroller kits. GHI Electronics
makes them and can be found over at www.tinyclr.com. The FEZ mini costs about $50 dollars. Adding on sensors is painless too.…
Rick Barraza has a great example on how to do page flipping. He explains the math and talks about the different steps to make it go from just a basic example
to the extra polish needed to make it over the top.
Damien Guard has created a nice little
cheat sheet for LINQ 2 SQL. Damien even went the extra yard and put it in both VB.Net and C# since the syntax is slightly different for each.
If you haven't tried LINQ2SQL, it is pretty powerful. Stuff that typically would have been a bit more complex…
With every year, the Coding4Fun team has come up with a small army of gift ideas. Here's our list of gift ideas sorted by price, starting from the freebies (things you should just have installed on your PC) all the way to up to gifts that are $500.
From $0 - $50
From $50 - $100
Ever wanted to do capture a webcam data stream and save it to a WMV file?
The UberDemo blog over at the MSDN blogs shows you how to accomplish just this. They had to create a Cirque du Soleil demo for MIX '08 and shows the basics on how to do this. They do note this isn't a production quality…
I the only one warming up their soldering iron? I posted a bit ago on being able to do a
Windows 7 sensor with a parallax board, but Brian Jepson (@bjepson) of
MAKE and O'Reilly helped port that driver into a more generic driver that works with Arduino!
Right now there is one Arduino sketch…
Bertrand Le Roy shows off how to create dynamic images leveraging WPF's image manipulation classes in an ASP.Net project instead of GDI+ classes to dramatically reduce creation time.
His prior post on this topic actually shows how to create them and why it is so fast. It also shows off…
