Herb’s last appearance on C9 was a relatively short chat about C++0x. You wanted more questions so Herb decided that the best way to get the questions you want asked is, well, to have you ask them. Most of the highest user-rated questions were asked and Herb answers with his usual precision.
For those who haven’t seen it yet, Charles Torre interviewed again Mohsen Agsen, Microsoft Technical Fellow who runs the Visual C++ engineering team.
Back in February Mohsen and Charles had had a first conversation, when they put forward the notion of a renaissance taking place in the native world.
You have lastly read in this blog about the C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (C++ AMP) . Since yesterday, those who couldn’t attend the AMD Fusion Developer Summit have the chance to watch on demand Herb Sutter’s keynote where C++ AMP was introduced and some demos were shown .
A while back Microsoft had released security bulletin MS11-025 that addressed a publicly disclosed vulnerability in certain applications built using the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a legitimate file associated with such an affected application,
Following the announcement made a day ago about C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (C++ AMP), now Microsoft Research released the Kinect for Windows SDK beta: a programming toolkit for application developers that enables the academic and enthusiast communities easy access to the capabilities offered by the Microsoft Kinect device connected to computers running the Windows 7 operating system.
Herb Sutter, Principal Architect with the Visual C++ team, got his keynote posted in Channel 9. He tells more details in his blog.
A few months ago, Herb Sutter told about a keynote he was to delivered today in the AMD Fusion Developer Summit (happening these days). He said by then:
“Parallelism is not just in full bloom, but increasingly in full variety. We know that getting full computational performance out of most machines—nearly all desktops and laptops,
