After a recent talk I gave on C++ AMP, one attendee was complaining that they were not familiar with lambdas and another found templates hard to parse. In case you are in the same boat, I thought I'd gather some essential reading material for you (also gives me one link to use in the future for referring people to ;-)
Lambdas are available (in some shape or form) in all modern languages, so do yourself a favor and learn about them:
Templates, have been around in modern languages for even longer than lambdas (e.g. Generics in .NET), so again go dive in:
In fact, why don't you refresh your knowledge and read the entire msdn C++ Language Reference – that's what I am doing!
If you are looking to keep up to date with what is happening in the C++ world, stay tuned on the Visual C++ team (aka WinC++ team) blog and ask questions in the C++ forums.
