About the Book
This book contains the Git and GitHub related blog posts posted on Dinis Cruz’ blog at http://blog.diniscruz.com.
This is the fist draft release of this book, so please send your suggestions, criticisms, ideas or comments to email@example.com
Notes about current structure: At the moment, the chapter order is the one created by the original ‘import from blogger’ (i.e. by publish order). A better idea might be to create logical groups, so that the posts are ordered based on some user-friendly criteria (still to be defined)

C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
