This is a recording from the 6th edition of the Belgian Community Day (21 June 2012).

The Windows 8 Runtime (WinRT) is the cornerstone for developing native C++ applications for the Windows 8 Metro platform. This session will explain what exactly the WinRT is, what it is capable of, and how to use it for your C++ Metro applications. You will also see a few language changes that have been made to C++ to make it easier to use the WinRT. The Metro UI aspect of C++ Metro applications can be implemented using XAML or DirectX. This session will go deeper in on how to use XAML and the XAML designers to develop UI for C++ Apps.
