How To Get Your C++ App To Pixelate Images And Use AI

How To Get Your C++ App To Pixelate Images And Use AI

Hello C++ and Delphi Developers,

Again, we have many new great posts. Today we will learn to make properties for a new FMX component, how to use a pixelate effect on images easily in our C++ app, how to get a file name without extension, and finally we explain the SELU Activation function which can be use in Neural Networks for writing AI apps with C++, with an example. In addition to these posts, we have a CppCon video that explains how to make your C++ compiler easily compile code samples.

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.

Here’s a few of your top C++ app questions answered

C++ Builder can supply all the answers to those questions above and the posts include some very simple step-by-step examples to show you how.

This article selects just five of the recent posts to give you a flavor; a sampling platter, if you like, of the feast of C++ knowledge which awaits you, so come on over the LearnCplusPlus.org and take a look.

We keep adding new topics about C++ in general and specific topics for C++ Builder, Dev-C++, and for the other C++ compilers. Please follow 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.

We wish you happy week, happy coding!
