I think there are lots of us c++ heads around, so a C++ topic would go down well. The majority of MS people who are .net people now were c++ people a few years ago etc, and certainly in my group much of our work still requires c/c++ coding. This is no
bad thing imo, though it's hard going back to those dangling pointer issues...
I'm not sure how many guys from the actual c++ compiler team are here, but i'm sure we could get them to join in, if we need them to.
Why don't you get us started compiler...what particular topics would you like to chat about?
