Building Metro Style Apps with C++ and JavaScript

Raman SharmaHi, I’m Raman Sharma, a Program Manager with the Visual C++ team.

As seen a few weeks ago at //BUILD, in the next version of Visual Studio you’ll be able to create Metro style app with Javascript. But this doesn’t mean that Javascript is the only language you can use. There are several reasons to leverage compiled code as well.

In this video I recently posted in Channel 9, you’ll learn how your Metro style app with HTML5 can directly access native code.

I’ll show you how to access your C++ Windows Runtime components from JavaScript.

After this talk, you’ll understand how to combine native and script code in order to build the most compelling Metro style applications.
