Hi, my name is Jim Hogg and I am a Program Manager, working in the Visual C++ compiler team in Microsoft, based on the main campus here in Redmond. More specifically, I work in the part of the compiler that optimizes your code,
To introduce myself I am Ankit Asthana and I am the program manager for the backend C++ compiler. In my last few blogs I provided an introduction to what PGO is all about along with case studies which covered how Profile Guided Optimization (PGO) is used to make real world applications such as SAP NetWeaver and Windows PHP faster.
If you’re interested in DirectX development, head on over to Channel 9, where there’s a new video about the Visual Studio 3D Starter Kit. This time, Roberto Sonnino interviews Gokhan Sengun, who’s created the Virtual Experiment Laboratory app, which is the first known app on the Windows Store that was built using the Starter Kit –
Image processing is a computational task that lends itself very well to GPU compute scenarios. In many cases the most commonly used algorithms are inherently massively parallel, with each pixel in the image being processed independently from the others. As a result,
To introduce myself I am Ankit Asthana and I am the program manager for the backend C++ compiler. In my last two blogs I provided an introduction to what Profile Guided Optimization (PGO) is all about and a case study which illustrates how PGO is used to make SAP NetWeaver faster.
My name is Garrett Serack, I’m not actually part of the Visual C++ team–I actually work as a Senior Software Development Engineer in Microsoft’s Open Source Technology Center, which is part of Windows Server. I have a distinctly different job than most here at Microsoft-I work to get Open Source software running better on Windows and Azure.
Recently, some of our customers reported a bug in Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 that breaks Windows XP targeting with C++ in some scenarios. Specifically, applications using ATL and/or statically linking with MFC will get the following error when run on Windows XP:
“The procedure entry point InitializeCriticalSectionEx could not be located in the dynamic link library kernel32.dll.”
