FAQ
Hey everyone,
I am looking at some projects coming up, which may or may not involve
python. So I figured I would throw the question out there and see what
everyone thinks.
I am looking for some books on software engineering/development...
something that discusses techniques from ideation, up through testing,
QA, production, and then maintenance. Is there such a book?

    I do not have my library with me, but I remember a book that fits the bill exactly, is was from Microsoft Press, I think it was called "Writing Solid Code"

    Hope this helps,

    Matt -

    Roger Pressman - Software Engineering, A Practicioner's Approach is a good
    one.
    Donald E. Knuth. - The Art of Computer Programming (5 Volumes) -
    http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~uno/taocp.html
    Horowitz - Fundamentals of Computer Algorithms
    Dowd, Macdonald, Shuh - The Art of Software Security Assessments

    Good Basic Reference Library for engineering, designing, writing, and
    SECURING code. I've got lots more titles on various aspects of engineering
    and OOA/OOD construction, design methods, etc., but these are (imo) a good
    foundation.

    Regards

    Jack

    I have done some research at amazon.com, and while "Writing Solid Code" is an excellent book that I would also recommend highly, the book I was thinking of was "Code Complete".

    If you are talking about general concepts in efficient, effective OO
    programming I'd suggest "Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns" by Kent
    Beck. I've developed in Java, C#, Python, Ruby, Smalltalk, and other
    languages and this book is an eye opener!
