C++ Going Native Conference - The Details
Written by Harry Fairhead

Going Native seems to be a Microsoft conference unselfishly devoted to C++11.

The schedule is now out and it looks good.

While other language biased programmers in the Microsoft world might be depressed about the long term future of their chosen technology C++ programmers are on the up. Going Native - the name says it all - may only be a two day conference but it promises to be a lively one.

As the announcement of the schedule says:

When's the last time Microsoft threw a C++ party - and in our house?

Yes it really is C++ renaissance time at Microsoft. They may not have said if there will be a Build or a Mix this year let alone when they might be but the C++ conference is progressing nicely. Going Native 2012 is described as "a 48 hour  technical event" that will be held at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond on February 2-3. If you do want to attend in person it will cost you $112  and you get to go to the end of conference dinner. The event is to be streamed on demand on Channel 9 for the unlucky programmers who don't get to the party or dinner for that matter.

It claims that the:

The primary technical focus will be on C++11, the latest version of ISO C++.

and if you look at the schedule it does seem not to be focused on specifically Microsoft technologies. For example there isn't a session on WinRT nor on the new runtime object technology based on COM.

Day one is titled C++11 Today and it kicks off with Bjarne Stroustrup: C++11 Style and then gets deeper as the day goes on: 

  1. Hans Boehm: Threads and Shared Variables in C++11
  2. Stephan T. Lavavej: STL11 – Magic && Secrets
  3. Andrei Alexandrescu: Variadic Templates are Funadic
  4. Panel: The Importance of Being Native (Bjarne, Andrei, Herb, Hans)

Day two is titled C++11 Today and Tomorrow

  1. Herb Sutter: C++11, VC++11 and Beyond
  2. Chandler Carruth: Clang - Defending C++ from Murphy's Million Monkeys 
  3. Andrei Alexandrescu: Static If I Had a Hammer
  4. Bjarne Stroustrup and Andrew Sutton: A Concept Design for C++

So if you thought you would go along to find out what Microsoft was up to in the C++ arena you will be disappointed. If you simply want to learn about and celebrate C++11 then this is your chance.
