It's almost time for another MIX conference! Once again I'll be there with the Coding4Fun crew showing off some spiffy new projects for attendees to play around with, along with a few other surprises. I'll also be taking part in John Papa's Open Source Fest on Monday evening, demonstrating WiimoteLib and my MJPEG Decoder.
Anyone else heading to the conference? If you are, be sure to stop by the Coding4Fun area in the Connect Lounge and say hello, and stop by the Open Source Fest on Monday night to take a look at over 50 great open source projects and vote for your favorites. I'd say I'd trade drinks for votes, but those are free, too.
And finally, if anyone attending is working on a fun or interesting project and would like to do an interview for my Coding4Fun Show on Channel 9, please let me know. Almost anything goes, so I'd love to see what everyone out there is working on.
Hope to see you there!

The fifth episode of my Coding4Fun Show, is now up on Channel 9. In this episode of the Coding4Fun Show, I chat with Josh Blake about Natural User Interfaces and Multitouch programming with .NET. Josh has written a multitouch PowerPoint replacement called NaturalShow, which was demonstrated during his NUI session at MIX10. Watch and learn a bit about how this application was created as well as how you can write multitouch applications with WPF. And for even more multitouch programming goodness and more on NaturalShow, Josh is currently working on a book titled Multitouch on Windows, which can be purchased and read while he's writing it!
You should see the video below if you have Silverlight installed, otherwise head over to the episode on Channel 9 to watch and download in a variety of formats for offline viewing.

A big thanks to Josh for the interview!

I will be at MIX10 showing off MindBlaster once again. More on that shortly…
But, more importantly, are you going to MIX10? Do you have a fun or interesting project you’d like to talk about? Let me know! I’m looking for people to interview for the Coding4Fun Show. I’m always interested in talking to people who want to chat about what they’re working on, even if it’s just a hobby or something that’s incomplete. That’s what Coding4Fun is all about! So please, if you’ll be at the MIX, have a few minutes to chat, and want to be the envy of your friends, contact me!

I know it’s short notice, but is there anyone in or around Orlando, FL working on a cool or interesting project that would like to have it shown off on Channel9 and Coding4Fun? I’ll be in town Thursday and Friday this week (12/10/09 and 12/11/09) and would love to interview you for an episode of the Coding4Fun Show. Contact me and let me know!

PDC 2009, starting November 17th, is almost upon us and I’ll be heading out to the conference once again with my Coding4Fun/Channel 9 playmates. Anyone else heading out to the big show?
We won’t be doing a Coding4Fun session like we did last year, but I will have another fun project for people to check out in the Coding4Fun area. I can’t give out details until after the show begins, but you can probably guess there is a Wiimote in the mix somewhere. And some spiffy new hardware. And maybe some XNA. Look for the details here after the show, and an article with full source code shortly thereafter.
We also have 4 or 5 other developers with their latest and greatest projects, all of which are nothing short of incredible and put mine to shame. I will likely be doing a compendium Coding4Fun Show with all of this year’s project authors so those not in attendance can see their incredible work.
I will also be hosting a table during lunch on Monday, November 16th during the FREE Windows 7 Developer Bootcamp. The topic at my table will be XNA. So, if you’re attending the all-day bootcamp on Monday and want to talk about all things XNA, be sure to stop by. I’d love to hear how other people are using XNA and, if they’re not, why and how they should, even if it’s just for fun.
If anyone will be attending the conference, please let me know so we can meet up for lunch or a beverage. Hope to see you all there!
