BUILD 2014, Talks for Thursday

BUILD 2014, Talks for Thursday

  • Comments 3

While I am not attending the Build conference myself, I did tune in for the keynote and bits and pieces of other live-streamed talks and look forward to catching many of the sessions over on Channel 9 once they are available.

Here is what is happening for C++ developers at Build on Thursday, 4/3:

  • 8:30 am – 11:30 am, Day Two Keynote. This will be streamed on Channel 9.
  • 12:00 am – 12:40 pm, Windows Desktop Development: A Panel Discussion (panelists include Ayman Shoukry and Tarek Madkour). Come talk desktop development with the product teams. Meet members of the teams and ask your desktop development questions about C++, WPF, .NET and more.
  • 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm, DirectX Graphics Development with Visual Studio 2013 (Rong Lu). Whether you are using DirectX to create games or an interactive UI for Windows apps, having the right tools will make your job easier. Visual Studio provides a rich set of graphics tools for writing shaders, working with graphics assets including images and 3D models, and diagnosing DirectX graphics issues.
  • 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm, Modern C++: What You Need to Know (Herb Sutter). This talk will give an update on recent progress and near-future directions for C++, both at Microsoft and across the industry. This is a great introduction to the current state of the language, including a glimpse into the future of general purpose, performance-intensive, power-friendly, powerful native programming. (There is more info on Herb's blog.)
  • 11:30 pm – 6:30 pm, Showcase. Drop by the Visual Studio booth and meet members of the Visual C++ and larger Visual Studio team. Bring your tough questions!

Share your thoughts in the comments below and as always, thanks for tuning in!

  • Make the live streams available at the time. I went to the page thinking this was possible. Is this by design? What I did see was fine.

    Parting thoughts

    The end of reign of the salesman is a good thing but was it in time?

    The gift card is tacky

    The xbone likely already had by those in attendance who wanted it

    The 930 wuld have been good when you consider it won't make it here at all

    P.S. Nokia putting USA at the end of the list for everything is weird

  • @Next time

    Thanks for the feedback. I would love for all of the sessions to be live streamed, but Channel 9 team is committed to getting the talks online within 24-48 hours. That is pretty good!

  • I'll save everyone the trouble and summarize Herb's talk now. C++ is making real strides. Microsoft continues to be lightyears behind everyone else.
