About two weeks ago there was quite a lot of turbulence in the community and vendors went nervous, some people even saw some kind of armageddon for Delphi. Even the more reason to talk the new Chief, ask him all the questions about their new policy, what is going to happen to and with Delphi. An explanation sometimes even in detail follows in the magazine. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CREATE AND TRAIN YOUR FIRST NEURAL NETWORK BY BOIAN MITOV The qu...

Учебные курсы по C++ и Delphi Летом, в самый разгар сезона отпусков, появляется замечательная возможность уделить больше времени «прокачиванию» своих умений, получению новых знаний, опробыванию незнакомых продуктов и технологий. Грех этим не воспользоваться! В период с 8 по 12 августа компания Embarcadero проводила краткий курс по работе с инструментом C++Builder 10.1 Berlin.  Курс был бесплатным, чтобы пройти его нужно было только зарегистрироваться на сайте, и затем, каждый рабочий день в течение этой недели подключаться к лекции, демонстрации и обсуждению через интернет.  Один минус – все на английском языке! И тем не менее, на курс зарегистрировались разработчики из 128 стран!  Ожидаем не меньшего инт...
