Intel® C++ compiler is an industry-leading C/C++ compiler, including optimization features like auto-vectorization and auto-parallelization, OpenMP*, and Intel® Cilk™ Plus multithreading capabilities; plus the highly optimized performance libraries.
We have created a list of articles with samples explaining the features in detail and how or when to use in the source code. There are:
The gradebook sample application showcases how to use Portable Class Libraries to demonstrate sharing logic across application platform targets including Windows Desktop and the Windows Store. The app then follows the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern to bind to the data. We use this approach to create classes and objects that can be reused in various client applications.
