Microsoft Casablanca Samples and Tutorials
The code repository associated with http://cloudysea.wordpress.com, which discusses the Casablanca Project (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/devlabs/casablanca)
This is the code repository accompanying the blog at http://microsoftcasablanca.wordpress.com
Casablanca is an incubation effort from Microsoft with the aim of providing an option for people to run C++ on Windows Azure. Until now, if you were a C++ programmer, the easiest option for you to use C++ would be to create a library and then P/Invoke
it from C# or VB.NET code. Casablanca gives you an option to do away with things like that.
You are probably thinking, “Why use C++?” The answer to that question is really “Why not?” Microsoft has been providing developers the option to use various other languages/platforms such as python and Node.js to write for Azure, and now they are giving the same option to C++ programmers – the ability to use the language of their choice to write applications in Azure.
We'll be writing more about Casablanca and our experiments with it on the blog
, so join us there!
