The Windows Driver Framework (WDF) helps developers build better quality drivers, more quickly and easily. This session will discuss how the WDF can improve driver reliability and will provide an overview on what's new in the WDF in Windows 10. This session will demonstrate how to debug a WDF driver instigating a crash and walking through the basics of crash analysis. Topics include: Overview of frameworks: Kernel Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) and User Mode Driver Framework (UMDF v2), Major design decisions for drivers and their criteria: framework, logging, etc., Walkthrough a basic UMDF driver, Demo of debugging a UMDF v2 driver with WinDbg, and What's new in Windows 10 for WDF. Intended Audience: IHVs, Driver Developers.

With concepts and ranges coming to the STL, big changes are in store for the Standard Library and for the style of idiomatic C++. The effort to redefine the Standard Library is picking up pace. Come hear about one potential future of the STL from one of the key people driving the change. — I've been doing C++ professionally for the past 20 years, first for Microsoft, then as an independent consultant. Right now, I'm working on bringing the power of "concepts" and "ranges" to the Standard Library with the generous help of the Standard C++ Foundation. Ask me about the future of the Standard Library, or about range-v3, my reference implementation for C++11.
This talk will showcase new capabilities we have added to some of the key networking APIs for Windows apps. We will cover new features added to our JSON, HTTP, Background Transfer and Sockets APIs. These features empower you, the developer, to write apps that send or receive data faster and can efficiently process that data even when your app is not in the foreground. Speakers: Himadri Sarkar, Michael Bishop, Sidharth Nabar.
Come hear us expand on the Microsoft vision for Management within the Cloud Platform ecosystem. This session covers details discussed in the Platform Vision & Strategy foundational session. In addition to System Center, we provide insights into integration scenarios with Microsoft Azure for better management.
