The presentation is not up to mark !!! "Life time management" slide... the presenter say why '^' symbol not '*', he don't know. He is floating around with his words. He gives an impression that he is not very comfortable himself with C++. Overall poor presentation.
@freefly Sorry but I disagree. I really enjoyed this video and found his explanation of why using ^ instead of * was a very good one. * is reserved for real pointers (which should only be used in special circumstances in "modern" C++ 11 style coding). ^ is reserved for auto ref counted handles (or garbage collected objects in the case of C++\CLI or maybe in the future of C++\CX). Great job and thanks for this video.
