Creating top-notch software isn't an easy task. Developers researching this subject online frequently have problems determining which advice is up to date and which approaches have already been superseded by fresher, better practices. At the same time, most resources explain this process chaotically, without the proper background, context, and structure.
Modern CMake for C++ is an end-to-end guide offering a simpler experience, as it treats building C++ solutions in a comprehensive manner.
