      Cool stuff. Thrilled to hear about the C++ pipeline over the coming months and years. These are the best of times to be a native developer for sure! Wish we could get Herb to speak at a venue in the UK though... Smiley

      I've to say that I'm really impressed by Microsoft. When they said that C++ was coming back, they were not jocking.
      Just keep up the good work guys, truly appreciated.

      Awesome. Looking forward to seeing what happens with C++. Great there are a lot of teams working on libraries and the like. As a paid C# developer, and an amateur ( Love messing with at home) C++ developer [Non Paid Smiley ]. I really missing the really large framework that .NET provides. Love to see C++ catch up in this area.

      I do think the language should be revised separately to the libraries to allow for libraries to make it in the standard quicker and accelerate the use of C++ due to a larger library base.

      Been on the isocpp.org site. Quite cool we have this now. Needs much more content though on the advanced topics of C++.

      Charles Torre Love to see a massive presentation on C++ Meta-programming. Do you think you can get some people to present maybe on boost::mpl or something? would be well sweet!
