Description

DTL310 Parallel Computing with Native C++ in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

Josh Phillips

Fri 5/15 | 2:45 PM-4:00 PM | Room 515A

Build more responsive C++ programs that take full advantage of multicore hardware. We demonstrate how the new Parallel Pattern Library (PPL) enables you to express parallelism in your code and how the asynchronous messaging APIs can be used to separate shared state and increase your application’s resilience and robustness. Finally, we take a look at some of the new capabilities of C++0x and Visual Studio to help you efficiently code and debug your multi-threaded applications.

DTL403 Microsoft Visual C++ Library, Language, and IDE: Now and Next

Kate Gregory

Thu 5/14 | 4:30 PM-5:45 PM | Room 408A

Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 included significant updates to the Standard Template Library including shared pointers–a smart pointer that is actually smart. See how shared pointers complete the resource management story for native C++ developers and never type “delete” again! Some of the upcoming language changes known as C++ 0x have already been incorporated into the next version of Visual C++. Lambdas and the auto keyword will open up new possibilities for native C++ programmers. Also get a “sneak peek” of some upcoming IDE features that will ensure native programming is more productive than ever.

DTL311 Connecting Native Code and Web Services Using Windows Web Services API

Tim Belvin

Tue 5/12 | 8:30 AM-9:45 AM | Room 515A

In this session we look into how you can use Windows Web Services API to connect native code base to SOAP-based Web services. We discuss key scenarios when this API brings value to native code developers, and drill down into how this API helps in building applications that take full advantage of the Microsoft software and services platform. Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and Windows SDK for Windows 7 are used in all demos.

 

In addition, Raman Sharma from the Visual C++ team will be present at the Native Languages booth on all days of the event.  We would be delighted to meet you during the event at one of the above sessions or in the booth.

 

Thank you
