Windows 8 comes with a brand new Metro style app experience where native developers and designers can work in parallel. Ones in behavioral aspects and the others in UI. This talk offers an end-to-end view of the developer experience for this kind of app, from the solution creation to the marketplace publication.

In this talk, Microsoft's C++ architect and chair of the ISO C++ standards committee Herb Sutter will showcase upcoming innovations in Visual C++ that show the Windows Runtime as a core part of native development. Windows 8 comes packed with rich APIs that are all Windows Runtime based, and C++ continues to deliver the tools you need to achieve the power and performance you have come to expect. Join us for a technical session that will serve as an overview of the new C++ programming model for the Windows Runtime and a prerequisite to other C++ sessions.

In this talk, you'll go deep into the new C++ for Windows Runtime, meet with some of the developers on the compiler teams that designed the language extension for C++, and open the lid to see the wiring the compiler provides. We’ll discuss the new C++ for Metro style apps, including the syntax, the performance characteristics, the compilation model, and more. If you're a C++ programmer, don't miss this talk!

C++ and XAML provide a new way for C++ developers to target Windows 8. This session will cover tips and tricks for effectively developing Metro style apps using C++. Topics covered will include the new Windows Runtime data types, using Exceptions, how to use the new Windows Runtime collections and the async programming model.

Many people think of C++ as the same language they experienced in college or just as “C with classes”, but the C++ language has evolved extensively over the years. In this session, we’ll cover how you can use C++ to write innovative, expressive and beautiful apps that deliver power and performance apps. Join us to see how the newly finished C++0x standard can make writing C++ as productive as many other languages.

Through this session, learn how to save time and improve customer satisfaction by finding and fixing bugs early in the development process. Visual Studio 11 C++ Code Analysis identifies critical defects that lead to crashes and security vulnerabilities in your C++ apps and drivers at compile time, and gives you the information you need to quickly prioritize and resolve them. Code Analysis is now included in all editions of Visual Studio 11, including Express, and there are many new features to discuss. This session also includes demos, examples and best practices on how to improve the quality of your apps and drivers. Join us to learn how you can use code analysis to develop great software that will delight your customers.

Developers today inject parallelism into their compute-intensive apps in order to take advantage of multi-core CPU hardware. Beyond CPUs, however, compute accelerators such as general-purpose GPUs can provide orders of magnitude speed-ups for data parallel algorithms. How can you as a C++ developer fully utilize this heterogeneous hardware from your Visual Studio environment? How can you benefit from this tremendous performance boost in your Visual C++ solutions without sacrificing developer productivity? The answers will be presented in this session introducing C++ AMP.
