At the Nashville stop of the .NET Rocks Visual Studio 2012 Launch Road Trip, Carl and Richard sat down with Kate Gregory to talk about C++ in Windows 8. Kate talks about how C++ has evolved to be a much more pleasant language to work in than the old days, as well as exploring how you can take advantage of amazing C++ technology like AMP to harness GPUs to do parallel processing. The conversation also turns to Hilo, a sample C++/XAML Windows 8 project on CodePlex. There's never been a better time to be a C++ programmer!
