Building Adaptable Software with Microservices
About the Book
There's no reason to have an agile process if your software can't keep pace.
This book is a collection of patterns that you can apply to build software that thrives on change and the disorder it brings.
This book is broken into three books that deal with the key challenge of software development today, namely how your software adapts to keep pace with the speed of innovation.
This is currently an Alpha version of the book. It is under active development right now. Upgrades until the book is completed will of course be free!

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.
