The Single Page App Jumpstart
About the Book
"The Single Page App Jumpstart"...
…uses a common example, the TodoMVC project, to make the code in the book comparable to other solutions, libraries and frameworks.
…aims to be the best and easiest to understand introduction to the subject.
The best way to learn a new subject is to start off from scratch, putting all abstractions and little helpers aside and get down to the nitty gritty. If you have come to terms with the basics, it’s the right time to find out how to make things easier, faster and more manageable.
This book is not finished: I'm trying to add a new chapter at least every other week. With every new chapter, I'll raise both the minimum price and the recommended price, as to thank early supporters for their contribution. The final price is not set yet, so if you want to make sure you'll get the book at a pretty cool discount, buy it now!

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.
