The Microsoft Visual C++ team is at CppCon 2016 this week, September 18 – 23 in Bellevue, WA.
CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community. It features sessions, lightning rounds, and hundreds of smart developers ready to chat C++.
We have a booth Tuesday and Wednesday with members of the team planning to be available for your questions: Gabriel Dos Reis, STL, Herb Sutter, Casey Carter, James McNellis, Gor Nishanov, Kenny Kerr and more.
Microsoft is also hosting a few talks:
- Embracing Standard C++ for the Windows Runtime, Kenny Kerr and James McNellis
- Latest and Greatest from the Visual Studio Family for C++ Developers, Daniel Moth and Steve Carroll
- An Introduction to C++ Coroutines, James McNellis
- C++ Coroutines: Under the covers, Gor Nishanov
- Putting Coroutines to Work with the Windows Runtime, Kenny Kerr and James McNellis
- tuple<>: What’s New and How it Works, Stephan T. Lavavej
- The Guideline Support Library: One Year Later, Neil MacIntosh
- C++ Modules: The State of The Union, Gabriel Dos Reis
- Iterator Haiku, Casey Carter
- Lifetime Safety… By Default: Making Code Leak-Free by Construction, Herb Sutter
This year (as with last year), talks will be videotaped and made available later in the week.
We created a one-page handout for attendees, so if you are unable to attend this year you can still see the latest news. It includes a survey open to everyone. If you opt-in, we may reach out to learn more about your experiences with C++.
As always, thanks for your continued feedback and suggestions.
See you there.
