“The time has come,” the ISO said, “To talk of many things: Of move-capture—and literals— Of making lambdas sing— And why deduction is so hot— And if digits should grow wings?”
So have you heard of the next C++ Standard? No, it is not C++11. Even though C++11 has just been ratified, C++14 will likely replace C++11 by next year. By now, we have enough experience with C++11 to know where we are missing various fingers and toes such as:
Why do we not have move capture in lambdas?
How about some real user-defined literal suffixes?
Why did we stop with monomorphic lambdas?
If lambda returns can be deduced, why not normal functions?
Could we get digit separators?
C++14 will be more than a bug-fix release, and will contain some important enhancements on top of C++11. It will remove some of the major annoyances from C++11, that we already know of. But more importantly, how will this change the language, library and some important idioms?
In this session join a true Cloud enthusiast in pondering the opportunities in the Cloud. Let's talk about what makes the Cloud unique compared to non-cloud predecessors. We will look at the nature of Cloud Computing – service oriented with a focus on statelessness, low coupling, modularity and semantic interoperability. How does this relate to the Modern App? How do I get going if I'm not a 'Cloud enabled Developer' today and is this urgent? We'll talk about how to embrace the change. The session will underline the concepts with demos of services in the Windows Azure Platform.
Windows 8.1 makes it easy for you to create apps that control devices using the Human Interface Devices (HID) industry standard. This session goes deep into the design of the new Windows Runtime HID API and walks you through the API and its functionality. It also demonstrates a custom HID peripheral to show you how to write apps that discover and communicate with HID devices using input, output, and feature reports.
