  • Lap around the Windows Runtime

    by Martyn Lovell

    The Windows Runtime (WinRT) is a key piece of technology used by all Metro style apps in Windows. What actually is the Windows Runtime though? This session explores this key question by digging into the concepts of language projections, the WinRT type system and advanced API patterns included in the Windows Runtime. Learn how Windows uses interface patterns combined with language projection to present modern concepts in a natural and familiar way to each programming language.

  • 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.

  • Using the Windows Runtime from JavaScript

    by Luke Hoban

    Metro style apps using JavaScript allow developers to combine the powerful and vibrant Web platform with the rich capabilities of Windows, to build exciting apps for Windows 8. JavaScript developers building Metro style apps have access to not just all of the Web platform, but also hundreds of Windows APIs, as well as opportunities to leverage custom native components. This talk will focus on how JavaScript developers can use the Windows Runtime and consume custom native components from JavaScript. With examples taken from rich Windows 8 capabilities like media, networking, sensors, and file systems, you’ll get an in depth look at how you can leverage the best of Windows in your Metro style apps using JavaScript.
