Greetings. Perhaps you missed our live Q&A with Charles Petzold a couple of weeks ago. The session is now posted here at the Microsoft Virtual Academy . (You must register with MVA to access this free material.) Principal Technical Evangelist Jaime Rodriguez and Charles discussed development for Windows 8, Charles’s new book ( Programming Windows, Sixth Edition ), C++ (including how I “encouraged” Charles to convert all his C# companion code for the new book to C++ [minute 43]), DirectX, the Windows Runtime API, moving from WPF to XAML, and lots more, including Charles’s Windows tattoo. They also took lots of questions live. This far-ranging conversation lasts about 63 minutes. Enjoy! more
