With the next standard C++0x on the way, C++ appears to be a language that is being revitalized.

C++ seems to be the language of the future. With the next C++ standard, C++0x, on the way the language looks to be revitalized. A video in which some of the more advanced aspects of C++ are discussed is now available at Channel 9.


It's a talk given at the recent TechEd 2011 by Kate Gregory titled  Modern Native C++ Development for Maximum Productivity and it covers:

  • Language and Library updates
    • C++0x and TR1
    • Lambdas, auto
    • unique_ptr, make_shared
  • IDE improvements
    • Intellisense – no ncb
    • Navigate To , red squiggles
  • Concurrency
    • PPL
    • New debug windows
    • Concurrency profile

It is an hour long but it takes the form of a voice over to the slides shown so it is more focused than many presentations. Some of the comments are worth hearing if you are in the habit of just getting on and using the language!


The video is available in high  quality at Channel 9.
