Channel 9 has just posted a recording of my opening talk to kick off C++ and Beyond 2011 last month in Banff. Here’s the link: C++ and Beyond 2011: Why C++.
It’s a keynote-y talk, not a technical talk, but we felt it was important to address an important trend involving the language. The goal is to share a perspective and rationale for why of late there’s such a resurgence of interest in C++ — both across the industry, and within Microsoft.
I hope you enjoy it!
