Visual Studio Online, go !

I have subscribed to Visual Studio Online (old Team Foundation Service) using a visualstudio.com sub-domain name. My account is created using http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/get-started/connect-to-vs.

It’s cool, I can use with 5 users for free. A real TFS in the cloud. There is also another solution that is to setup project on codeplex.com. It allow to have a TFS set up.

Preparation for TechDays 2014 in Paris

This week is the last one to submit sessions to the TechDays 2014 in Paris that occurs in February 2014. This year, with Loic Joly, we will cover the Best Practices for C++ and focus of a specific feature of C++ 11 like shared_ptr<T> or unique_ptr<T>. We are working on it.

Previous sessions for TechDays I made:

– TechDays 2011 : ALM with Visual C++

– TechDays 2012 : C++ 11 Overview, with Alain Zanchetta.

– TechDays 2013 : Native Development using C++ 11, with Loic Joly.

The road to C++ 14

A couple of weeks ago, there were several Microsoft events like BUILD and Going Native 2013. For C++, there are several good sessions even in BUILD conference. Check theses links:

– What’s new for C++ developers in Visual Studio 2013 : http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2013/2-305

– The Future of C++ : http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2013/2-306

The Going Native 2013 conference is absolutely and only for C++ developers so all sessions are relevant. The link to the video and slides is here : http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/GoingNative/2013. You should check theses two videos:

– Bjarne Stroustrup – The Essence of C++: With Examples in C++84, C++98, C++11, and C++14 : http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/GoingNative/2013/Opening-Keynote-Bjarne-Stroustrup

– Herb Sutter : One C++ : http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/GoingNative/2013/Keynote-Herb-Sutter-One-Cpp

Herb Sutter describes in its both sessions the roadmap to C++ 14 and the existing work made by Visual C++ to cover C++ 11.
