Topic
The Windows Vista Bridge: How Managed Code Developers Can Easily Access Exciting New Vista Features
Accessing new Windows Vista features is a challenge from managed (.NET) code. The level of interoperability required is out of reach for many developers. The Vista Bridge is a sample library you can use in your own projects today that provides access to new user interface features as well as “behind the scenes” power features. Discover a shortcut to Windows Vista for Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual C# programmers and how you can get involved. This talk is freshly updated for Tech Ed Europe where I will deliver it Nov 13th. I am using the version of Vista Bridge delivered in the SDK for Windows 7 on the PDC hard drive. I will be able to distribute this version to attendees.
