6 Ways To Improve Your C++ (And Neural Network!) Knowledge

Hello C++ Developers,

LearnCPlusPlus.org is packed full of great articles on new modern C++ topics for professionals and beginners. In this article, we point you toward some recent great posts about how to open old project files like *.mak and *.bpr files, how to create a DLL in FMX projects, and 64bits VCL Component. Do you want to set the runtime process priority of your applications in runtime? For the Artificial Intelligence field, we explain the simplest basic activation function that can be used in C++ applications. As you see, again we have a lot of different topics that can be used in Modern C++ applications.

If you are new to RAD Studio, we think these posts may help you as much as a rapid introduction to programming in C++ if you’re a beginner, all the way to the most robust, modern, and latest techniques for those more experienced with the language. For those who are perhaps wanting to expand their knowledge with the most up-to-date features, routines, and methodologies this is a great little boost (pun intended) to your C++ knowledge. The new RAD Studio 11C++ Builder 11, Delphi 11 are released with great new features and according to our tests, the LearnCPlusPlus.org examples are working well with the latest RADS 11.

What Are The Recent C++ Posts?

Here are some terrific post picks from LearnCPlusPlus.org,

Your comments and likes on social media and here are real motivators for us. Thank you for all your valuable comments. All improve the quality of our future codes and posts.

We keep adding new topics about C++ in general and specific topics for C++ Builder, Dev-C++, and for the other C++ compilers. Please keep following our LearnCPlusPlus.org website for the latest posts and updates. Feel free to comment and share with your colleagues, students, members – knowledge is power, and knowledge shared is empowering.


C++ Builder is the easiest and fastest C and C++ IDE for building simple or professional applications on the Windows, MacOS, iOS & Android operating systems. It is also easy for beginners to learn with its wide range of samples, tutorials, help files, and LSP support for code. RAD Studio’s C++ Builder version comes with the award-winning VCL framework for high-performance native Windows apps and the powerful FireMonkey (FMX) framework for cross-platform UIs.

There is a free C++ Builder Community Edition for students, beginners, and startups; it can be downloaded from here. For professional developers, there are Professional, Architect, or Enterprise versions of C++ Builder and there is a trial version you can download from here.
