Going Native

There has been a recent push for a return to native coding on the Windows platform. You can see it from the resurgence of the C++ programming language. Part of this might be due to the latest update to the C++ language specification. Long live C++11. The language was last updated 10 years ago.

Not sure if the new excitement is going to stick. However it seems like more frequent C++ language updates are planned for the future. I am hearing more and more about the upcoming C++14 changes. And there is even remote noise regarding C++17.

This is only natural. Java always seems to be having updates to the language. But one thing I don't seem to hear much about is advances in the C# programming language. Yeah there might be some new ideas for .NET technologies. But the C# bandwagon may be abandoned.
