Aspose.Slides Cloud is one of our popular Cloud API offering the features to perform MS PowerPoint & OpenOffice presentation slides creation, processing, merging & conversion by simple cURL commands via REST API. Also, in order to facilitate our customers using certain programming languages, we have created individual Cloud SDKs i.e. Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for .NET, Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for Java, Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for PHP etc. Therefore, in order to facilitate our loyal customers using C++, we are introducing the release of Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for C++. So, now you can use C++ PowerPoint SDK to create, manipulate and transform PPTX files to other supported formats using C++ language.
It offers you the capabilities to generate, modify, convert PowerPoint & OpenOffice presentations without using Microsoft PowerPoint. No MS Office automation or any other application required and perform all the document processing capabilities using Cloud API. All you need to do is configure your environment using C++11, Boost, and C++ REST SDK.
