For many developers CMake is not so intuitive, eg. because of the syntax. Others are able to see CMake documentation, but miss good practical examples. After more than 10 years of experience in programming and leading many CMake workshops I was ready to prepare multiplatform friendly course for beginners in CMake world and also for people that has experience in CMake that will help to solve that problems.
There is many tutorials and blog posts, so why this training? In this training I put not only theory that you can find in the popular websites, but firstly I present:
good practices from first lecture
how to avoid making simple but hard to find mistakes
advantages and disadvantages of many solutions
This training is the first part of series "Effective Modern CMake".
In this training I try to avoid the command line that is usually good, but platform dependent, so never mind if you are using Windows, Linux or macOS. This training is for you. Moreover I show differences and in some topics dedicated solutions for each platform if it is needed. I prepared videos that help you setup environment in the most popular code editors like CLion, Visual Studio and Qt Creator. Of course you can use your favorite IDE.
Would you like to have an example of given topic, eg. integrating with C++ library? Put a comment and collect the vote!
