From the page, http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/Announcing-Building-Windows-8-Metro-Style-Apps-with-C-A-Free-Event , the Visual C++ team is conducting a free, day long, event in Redmond, on May 18, 2012. The registration is currently full, but the team intends to stream the event Live!!!
Herb Sutter is doing the keynote and the day is full of deep technical training on all things Metro: C++, C++ /CX, WinRT, XAML, DirectX and much more.
This is not an event for C# or VB.net or JS developers.
