One of the most exciting new features in Windows 10 version 1511 is Continuum for Mobile which allows newer phone hardware such as the Lumia 950 to work with a connected screen such as a TV or Monitor, a mouse and keyboard to give a PC-like computing experience. In this session, learn what it takes to create apps that work on Continuum for Mobile.
Modern C++ is clean, safe, and fast. It continues to deliver better and simpler features than were previously available. How can we help most C++ programmers get the improved features by default, so that our code is better by upgrading to take full advantage of modern C++?
This talk continues from Bjarne Stroustrup's Monday keynote to describe how the open C++ core guidelines project is the cornerstone of a broader effort to promote modern C++. Using the same cross-platform effort Stroustrup described, this talk shows how to enable programmers write production-quality C++ code that is, among other benefits, type-safe and memory-safe by default – free of most classes of type errors, bounds errors, and leak/dangling errors – and still exemplary, efficient, and fully modern C++.
Background reading: Bjarne Stroustrup's 2005 "SELL" paper, "A rationale for semantically enhanced library languages," is important background for this talk.
