As part of today’s VS 2013 launch, in addition to the live talks and Q&A we also have some recently recorded talks that are now also live. My talk is a quick 20-minute tour of the new ISO C++ conformance features in VC++ 2013 — nothing I haven’t said before, so if you’ve seen my last two Build talks you’ve seen this material, only here I’ve condensed it to a distilled two-minute overview of each feature using examples.
Here they are, each between 4 and 20 minutes long. Note that these are just the (V)C++-specific topics — be sure to look at the Related Videos of each to see other new features that light up for C++ as well as for other languages.
ISO C++ Additions in Visual C++ 2013 (Herb Sutter)
ISO C++ received a major upgrade with the latest standard, adding many features that make the language both simpler and more powerful. Visual C++ 2010 and 2012 have already implemented a number of these features, from auto to range-for to lambdas. In this video, Herb Sutter reviews the additional ISO C++ standards conformance improvements in Visual C++ 2013, and how each of them contributes to making modern C++ code clean, safe, and faster than ever.
What’s New for C++ Developers in Visual Studio 2013 IDE (Jennifer Leaf)
Visual Studio 2013 includes several compelling new features for C++ developers. In this video, you’ll learn about IntelliSense improvements, the new code formatting feature, and other changes that help you navigate through and write your code.
New Compiler Optimizations for C++ Applications (Jim Hogg & Ankit Asthana)
C++ developers will find many improvements in Visual Studio 2013 — including new versions of the compiler, linker and tools — that make code run faster. In this video we’ll cover C++ performance improvements, including better vectorization; permutation in the order of loop nests; better Profile-Guided Optimization (that now applies to Windows Store apps); a new vector calling convention; and more support for C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (AMP).
Debugging Improvements for C++ Developers (Brad Sullivan)
Visual C++ in Visual Studio 2013 includes improvements for Windows App developers in the core language and libraries, as well in tooling, debugging and designers. This video will provide an overview of these new features in Visual Studio 2013 for C++ developers building Windows Store apps.
