ONTaQ #4: Managed C++ and Unmanaged Libraries

This isn’t the next One New Thing a Quarter I thought I’d be writing, but I’ve learned some things on this topic that I want to record, as much for myself as for anyone. This started with an offhand remark on the Polymorphic Podcast that there was an accelerated feed available. Listening...

ONTaW #3: Ink friendly editable label

This week’s Thing a Week was suggested by Mike Wood.  It’s a control I’m putting together for my WPF project for fun.  I really like the Tablet PC idea and enjoy using the pen as an input device where it makes sense, so I wanted a label that you could click on and bring up an ink editing panel...

One New Thing a Week #0: A Beginning

I've been bad for the last few years. I haven't really made much of an effort to keep up with the technology NEARLY as much as I should have. Not that I haven't been doing things, but nothing that really got me familiar with all the new stuff out there. So this is my effort to come clean. I'm going to...
