Description

Join the Microsoft Visual C++ and Windows teams in Redmond on May 18, 2012 for a free, all-day event focused on building Windows 8 Metro style apps with C++.  

These Windows-specific talks will use both portable ISO C++ and Visual C++-specific compiler extensions; for brevity below we'll refer to both as "C++" (i.e., this day is about Visual C++, not Visual C# or JavaScript).


We will have pragmatic advice for every developer writing Metro style apps and games with XAML and/or DirectX and C++.

This event is sold out.  However, it will stream live right here on Channel 9! Tune in on May 18, 2012, 8:00AM PDT.

Agenda:

  • VC++ for Windows 8, Keynote by Herb Sutter
  • Building Windows 8 apps with XAML and C++
  • Building Windows 8 games with DirectX and C++
  • Introduction to the Windows Runtime Library  (WRL)
  • Writing Connected apps: Writing networking code with C++
  • Combining XAML & DirectX in a Metro style apps
  • Writing WinRT components to be consumed from any language
