Information about software engineering
There is no course textbook.
There are a huge number of books on software development, but many of the recent books are about specific methodologies or development environments rather than discussions of general principles. For practical programming I rely almost entirely on online tutorials, technical documentation, and help forums.
Here are some sites that I use regularly.
Wikipedia is a good source for definitions and discussions for many of the topics discussed in the course.
w3schools has excellent tutorials and reference materials for almost every aspect of web development.
For developing mobile apps, there is comprehensive documentation for Android and iOS provided by Google and Apple and tutorials for how to get started. Except for the tutorials, do not try to read this documentation continuously. Search to find a topic and explore from there.
Stack Overflow is a language-independent collaboratively edited question and answer site for programmers. I encourage you to submit your questions and to provide answers for others.
Here are some books that I find useful:
