  • Using the Windows Runtime from C++

    by Herb Sutter

    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.
