Moving on from Microsoft and my next steps…


I have an announcement to make. I sent this mail over to my colleagues at Microsoft last week.


After nearly 8 years with Microsoft wearing different hats, as a Consultant and a PM, it is time for me to move on to my next challenge. I am leaving MS to chase my startup dreams. My experience with Microsoft provided me with many wonderful opportunities to learn, collaborate, grow and in the process ship solutions and products that delight customers.

I have also made a lot of friends’ whose guidance and notes of wisdom I will long cherish. In short, I will take plenty of wonderful memories with me.

July 1 is officially my last working day. Stay in touch. I’m a tweet, post, IM, email, like away.

-Sridhar Poduri


Hopefully between my various engagements in the startup, I will also continue talking about C++, WinRT and Windows 8/8.1

Opening Keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup
September 7–12, 2014
Bellevue, Washington, USA

Registration is now open for CppCon 2014 to be held September 7–12, 2014 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington, USA. The conference will start with the keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup titled “Make Simple Tasks Simple!

CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community. You will enjoy inspirational talks and a friendly atmosphere designed to help attendees learn from each other, meet interesting people, and generally have a stimulating experience. Taking place this year in the beautiful Seattle neighborhood and including multiple diverse tracks, the conference will appeal to anyone from C++ novices to experts.

Bjarne Stroustrup

What you can expect at CppCon:

  • Invited talks and panels: the CppCon keynote by Bjarne Stroustrup will start off a week full of insight from some of the world’s leading experts in C++. Still have questions? Ask them at one of CppCon’s panels featuring those at the cutting edge of the language.
  • Presentations by the C++ community: What do embedded systems, game development, high frequency trading, and particle accelerators have in common? C++, of course! Expect talks from a broad range of domains experts focused on practical C++ techniques, libraries, and tools.
  • Lightning talks: Get informed at a fast pace during special sessions of short, less formal talks. Never presented at a conference before? This is your chance to share your thoughts on a C++-related topic in an informal setting.
  • Evening events and “unconference” time: Relax, socialize, or start an impromptu coding session.

CppCon’s goal is to encourage the best use of C++ while preserving the diversity of viewpoints and experiences, but other than that it is non-partisan and has no agenda. The conference is a project of the Standard C++ Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to support the C++ software developer community and promote the understanding and use of modern, standard C++ on all compilers and platforms.

The first 100 registrations get a big discount – quoting from the “registration” page:

Regular registration fee is $995 but the first 100 attendees can take advantage of Super Early Bird registration and pay only $695. After that, the Early Bird registration fee is $845 and is valid until the 1st of June. …

I intend to travel to the conference and will be looking forward to meeting you there!
