Modern Native C++ Development for Maximum Productivity

TechEd 2011 North America took place in Atlanta a few weeks ago. If you missed, its sessions are posted in Channel 9. The one we highlight here, Modern Native C++ Development for Maximum Productivity, was delivered by C++ MVP Kate Gregory. If you are a follower of this blog you may already know Kate.

The thing I liked most about this session is that it was not yet-another-talk on new aspects of C++0x (or C++11 if you like, to contribute with all those predictors that C++11 is on its way to become the official name of the recently finished standard). Instead, this talk focused on finding scenarios where these evolved language constructs become decisive.

In this 1-hour talk, Kate focus on

  • Language and Library updates
    • C++0x and TR1
    • Lambdas, auto
    • unique_ptr, make_shared
  • IDE improvements
    • Intellisense – no ncb
    • Navigate To , red squiggles
  • Concurrency
    • PPL
    • New debug windows
    • Concurrency profiler

Other talks and resources:

  • Thanks for highlighting the talk, Diego! I really enjoyed this one. Plenty of people and great energy in the room, especially given the time slot. It is just flat out FUN showing people what C++ can do these days.

  • I'm sure that the audience looks forward to getting more wisdom in the amusing way you do, Kate. Thanks!
