Join us at 7:00 on Wednesday, December 11th as David Cravey gives not one but two presentations on C++! Doors open at 6:30 so please arrive a bit ahead of time so we can be ready for both presentations.
2.) Asynchronous programming with VC++ CTP's Resumable Functions
Asynchronous programming has historically been very difficult, as it requires flow control to be turned inside out. But a new proposal to the ISO C++ Standardization Committee may change that soon. The recently released MS VC++ 2013 November CTP has a working implementation that allows the compiler to handle the hard parts of asynchronous programming, while you can focus on the correctness of your code. This exciting technology will make it easier for your application code to avoid blocking the UI thread, and allow your servers to scale better. Together we will take a peek into how this technology works, and how it will change your code for the better!
