GoingNative: a New Channel 9 Show Dedicated to Native Development

  • Comments 51

imageGoingNative is a new, monthly show on Channel 9 dedicated to native development and native developers, with an emphasis on modern C++. In our inaugural episode, we keep things light and easy as we introduce you to what we're doing, why we're doing it, and how it will go down.

The main goal of episode 0 is to introduce the cast of characters, including your hosts Charles Torre and Diego Dagum, and to present some ideas of how we think this show will be organized and executed. For example, Diego and Charles will typically construct the show, iterate through some code demos of varying complexity, converse with native developers from Microsoft and across the industry, and then destruct the show. 
In this first episode we do talk about and demo a few new C++ features (shared_ptr, lambdas, auto) and have a conversation with Ale Contenti - development manager of VC's front-end compiler, libraries, and IDE.

[You can play around with the demos in this episode by downloading the free VC++ Express IDE]

Go native!

  • @Victor as for Stephan's pay grade and what he can talk about and what he cannot? I indicated to him in one of my posts that as far as I'm concerned he cannot say anything without permission. And what was my response to his reply when he explained that he cannot answer to my question because he is not allowed to? I've said: fair enough, which means that I do understand it and I'm ok with it.

    So could you please stop accusing me of provocating anything and anyone. The only thing I want is to get straight answers to my straight questions. That's all. Nothing more nothing less.


  • @Reza - Since you are running WinXP, then you should check if you have installed the latest UIA (Windows Automation) component support.microsoft.com/.../971513. Failing to do this will cause VS2010 to perform poorly on WinXP.

  • @Rolf - Thanks for the hint. I checked and KB971513 is already installed on all machines.

  • @Knowing me, knowing you, a-ha: By the way, thanks a lot for this link:


    I didn't know about that site. I am going to vote both for the above suggestion as well as for the suggestion in:


    Even though voting on this new site will likely result in nothing, that's still an opportunity to express one's thoughts on VS and propose solutions to its problems. Who knows, maybe someone other than Microsoft will notice the gap in the market for a reliable and fast IDE for native C/C++ development and will try to fill that gap.

  • @PleaseFixYourBugs Cheers mate! I also believe that even though nothing will be done by Microsoft in that aspect (more than certain), AT LEAST, we, NATIVE DEVELOPERS have the chance to say what we want, what we expect and what we don't like.

    And yes, maybe someone will notice the gap. I sincerely do hope so.

    C++ Rules and Rocks!


  • Agree with C++ Language, after all we all belong to the same family.<a href="www.getgyan.com/.../a> I agree with you.
