I’ve blogged about Casablanca before. Here’s a related talk from TechEd Australia:
Casablanca is a Microsoft incubation effort to support cloud-based client-server communication in native code using a modern asynchronous C++ API design. Think of it as Node.js, but using C++ – from simple services, to JSON and REST, to Azure storage and deployment, and more.
Casablanca gives you the power to use existing native C++ libraries and code to do awesome things on the cloud server. In this talk from TechEd Australia, John Azariah and Mahesh Krishnan show how it’s done.
