Team Guide to Software Releasability
About the Book
The last book in the 'Team Guide' collection from Skelton Thatcher Publications.
Strong build & release engineering capabilities are key to rapid and reliable delivery of modern software systems. Learn how software releasability means not only being able to deploy faster, but also being able to quickly recover from disaster and adapt to changing technical and business challenges.
The ‘Team Guide’ collection is designed to help teams building and running software systems to be as effective as possible. Guides are curated by experienced practitioners and emphasise the need for collaboration and learning, with the team at the centre.

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.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.
