Before we're diving into Conan let's make ourselves familiar with the environment we're working in.
On the right side you see an editor window and a terminal. This is a normal Ubuntu-based system, you can freely navigate through the system and edit files. As you are root-user it's even possible for you to install additional software or reconfigure the system.

Within the directory
helloworld/source is a very simple
hello.cpp that gets built with a standard
CMakeLists.txt. To open those files click onto the following links:
We want to build the application within the
helloworld/build directory by using CMake. Building the app is straight-forward:
mkdir -p ~/helloworld/build && cd ~/helloworld/build
cmake --build .
As you can see there is no magic going on...
