Microsoft @ CppCon

The Microsoft C++ team will have a booth and many talks covering a wide range of topics at CppCon 2019. Come say hi to our team outside Aurora D and attend our talks to learn what’s new in our tooling, dive into new features in the standard, and hear some exciting announcements!

We’ll also be running a survey on the C++ ecosystem and giving away an Xbox One S to one participant. We’ll put the link here when it’s available, but you’ll also be able to find it by stopping by the booth or coming to any of our talks:
