Learn about the new native device development feature in the next release of Visual Studio. This talk will cover developing, debugging and deploying C++ applications to Pocket PC, Smartphone and Windows CE. It will also cover improvements made since eMbedded Visual C++ and the work being done in the native frameworks such as MFC and ATL

I graduated from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia with a double degree in Computer Engineering and Goofing Off, and gave up the miserable weather and horrid beaches for the fairer climate of Seattle. I’ve been in the Smart Devices team for over two-and-a-half years now, first as a Release Program Manager, and subsequently as the PM for Native C++ for Device development features. In my spare time I like to scuba dive, snowboard, play Halo and flirt with the Seattle Police in my Lancer Evo. I’m desperately hoping MS stock will one day allow me to afford the 911 Turbo that I long for.

I graduated from University of Michigan in 98 with a BSE in Computer Engineering. I grew up just outside of Detroit, and saw my first mountain during an interview with HP in Fort Collins, CO. I promptly decided to flee the flatness of the Midwest. My first job was working on avionics software with Honeywell, until I realized they were actually putting my code on airplanes… Since I need to fly back to Detroit to see my family, this was a problem for me. Now I am a developer in Visual Studio for Devices to support my snowboarding problem. I’ve been here about 3.5 years, and holding a close second for “grumpy old man” of this group. When I’m not complaining to the newbies about how fun this group was before they got here, I’m trying to help write a kick-ass native debugger for devices.
