I know that this is a bit off-topic, but CMake is part of VTKs build system ... Kitware’s documentation is comprehensive, but can be a bit opaque to beginners. Much of the stuff you will find on the internet is a bit dated, or contains bad advice (or both). I got a copy of “Mastering CMake,” which helped me a bunch (Ken Martin is one of the authors). I have also found “Professional CMake: A Practical Guide” to be very good (and is very up-to-date).
For free resources:
Daniel Pfeifer had a good presentation about “modern” CMake on YouTube, it is referenced in this blog in the first paragraph:
GitHub hosts many repositories with example usage, such as: https://github.com/ttroy50/cmake-examples
There was also an “Ask Me Anything” with the CMake developers on Reddit that was an interesting read:
It is featured on the CMake page: https://cmake.org/
