@billatq: We purposely asked Ales to keep this high level because:
a) He had 35 minutes to introduce WinRT to many who know little about it...
b) The talk after his will go deeper (and is 60mins...)
This is not marketing fluff (Ales is an engineer, not a marketing executive). The uber points were clear: WinRT is a C++ system. Windows is committed to C++ and C++ developers. WinRT is the modern Windows development platform, designed to support multiple languages, especially C++. I thought that was all really well delivered.
@spasticD: Yep. The videos will appear right here (on this event site on C9...).
"Volta" was the codename that turned into the 'official' project name that turned into a law suit. All is well, except that it's dead (It was by far one of the best things Erik et al dreamed up and implemented. Such a shame it never saw the light of day as it was meant to, but so much goodness, like Rx, came out of it, so there's that...).
@tomkirbygreen:You'll learn about await for C++ at GoingNative 2013 (as you know). For sure, we know there is an audience for this... We have been really busy constructing GN13. Fear not, Tom.
@WinInsider: I have no useful insights into the fate of the project, internally. I wasn't involved with it...
@rdwells: Yes. It will stream live on the C9 homepage. We will take questions from the virtual audience, as well, although at a lower priority than the attendees in the room.
