5 Things To Know When You’re Learning To Write C++ Software

5 Things To Know When Youre Learning To Write C++ Software

Hello Great C++ Developers,

C++Builder is a great C++ IDE and compiler, that has a lot of modern features that help your power through that C++ software learning curve. Every week we try to gather together a few of the most recent C++ posts on LearnCPlusPlus.org. This week we will learn about Lambda expressions. We also learn about methods of Forms (TForm class type) like the mouse, keyboard events, when the form is painted or resized, and similar events. Another post is an introduction to database apps with the really powerful Live Bindings which can take a lot of the hard work out of reading, displaying and writing data. In another post, we will learn to use time and its properties in modern C++. To finish it all off we will learn to convert floating numbers to strings within different methods in C++Builder.

What is LearnCPlusPlus.org and how does it help me write C++ Software?

LearnCPlusPlus.org is packed full of great articles for professionals and beginners alike. The posts vary from articles suitable for people who are just starting to learn C++ – basics like string handling, pointers, loops, and all those fundamental building blocks of this rich and powerful programming language – to much more in-depth and advanced subjects like artificial neural networks and AI, along with the math behind it. Our focus is on the C++ language, particularly modern C++, and will work with almost any environment and IDE software you can choose although, of course, we believe RAD Studio C++Builder is the best option!

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, and Delphi 11 are released with great new features and we are developing and testing new examples for you with the latest RADS 11 that means.LearnCPlusPlus.org examples are working well with the latest C++Builder.
