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!
