How To Make Faster And More Glamorous Modern Apps With C++

Hello C++ Developers, is packed full of great articles for professionals and beginners on new modern C++ topics to speed up your applications and to make them look visually stunning with an updated, modern look in a few simple steps. In these articles, we explain how you can simply use all cores of your CPU by using Parallel Programming Library in C++ Builder. We explain the dark and light sides of the Brute Force Method. We teach how you can use the sscanf function in C and C++. How you can apply Glow Effects and Shadow Effects to have a gorgeous modern application with UI visuals which really add a touch of glamour so they don’t just work better they look better too. Examples and some tips in the posts may help Delphi developers too.

If you are new to RAD Studio, we think these posts may help you as much as a rapid introduction to programming in C++, 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 we are developing and testing new examples for you with the latest RADS 11 that examples are working well with the latest C++ Builder.

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.
