GoingNative Live at BUILD!! This is part 1 with very special guests Joanna Mason, Herb Sutter and Tony Goodhew (co-host and GN partner). If you're curious about Herb's and Tony's positions on the C++11 compliance in VC11, this is a great thing to watch. Please re-watch it. And then watch it again. Did you hear what Herb said?
Joanna works on the Xaml designer for Blend that you can use to build UI for your C++ app. That's right. A Xaml design surface for native developers.
