This talk highlights efforts by Kenny Kerr, Herb Sutter, Gabriel Dos Reis, and others to make Windows a great place for C++ developers, replacing proprietary extensions and tools with standard C++ code. The talk begins with a quick introduction on what C++/WinRT is, how it helps make it super simple to create projects targeting Windows that use just ordinary C++ code, how the project uses advanced C++17 and TS features today, the roadmap for the next few months, and then how we’re looking ahead at things like modules and metaclasses to dramatically improve the way we think of and use C++ on Windows.
