WinRT is love

A session at SDD 2014

Tuesday 20th May, 2014

11:30am to 1:00pm (GMT)

Don Box famously coined the phrase “COM is love”. Fifteen years on, we’re still feeling the love for COM as we embrace its latest incarnation with WinRT.

This is a deep dive talk into all things WinRT, from the way that Windows 8 Store Applications get launched through to the language projections and the type system.

So no matter whether you work on Windows 8, in C++, C# or JavaScript, you really need to know what’s under the covers. And that’s what this talk delivers.
