Join the Microsoft Visual C++ and Windows teams in Redmond on May 18, 2012, 0900 - 1700 PDT for an all-day Windows Camp focused on building Windows 8 Metro style apps with C++.
This event will be streaming live right here on Channel 9 (media player will be on this very page)! All sessions will be made available for on demand viewing after the event.
Whether you are a new C++ developer ready to learn about writing Metro style apps, an intermediate developer who wants to honeyour code and skills, or an experienced C++ developer eager to squeeze every ounce of performance out of your Metro style app, this event is for you. We will have pragmatic advice for every developer writing Metro style apps and games with XAML and/or DirectX and C++.
Note: These Windows-specific talks will use both portable ISO C++ and Visual C++-specific compiler extensions.
