Contribute to opensource: the right way 2nd edition
Have you ever wondered how the open source world exists thanks to the contribution of thousands of people all over the world? Is there a way to learn the skills to contribute at maximum, or to improve it?
About the Book
My experience of the last years, based on book/resources and my personal point of view!
The book is open source as well, you can pay (I will choose where send the money as they go in to different Open source projects) or get free.

Open source is as a global philosophy. As a "lifestyle".
It is not a generalization as [the book] define it at the beginning. Usually we tend to relegate this philosophy to small niches. Instead it relies on high values of the human being and should (could) cause a revolution for the better if applied sincerely in every field.
Writing about how to contribute is more valuable than contributing itself
Giving wider impact for the world, especially for open source projects. It is also taken up how to gather the power of volunteers not only contributing by yourself alone.

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.
