- The weekly reading list is found in the syllabus (see above). Most of these readings are various chapters from O'Reilly books.

- Safari Books Online by O'Reilly has all of these books. It's a paid membership, but there is a free trail period. Often many companies provide free memberships to employees, so you may want to check where you work (also see if you have a company librarian and check with them). [ external link ]

- Assignment links - for security reasons, these links cannot be placed on a publicly facing website. They will be provided via slack using the section channel. Please click on each assignment link and follow the instructions there. Note that each assignment will have it's own repo under the instructor's organization. GitHub Classroom calls assignments as activities.
