In my last blog post I tried to summarize the SWET8 conference as a whole. One thing I omitted on purpose was all the great pointers to books and other sources of knowledge that I got during the weekend. This blog post will try to gather them all in one place. The variety of different topics really speaks for how diverse discussions we had throughout (and after) the conference. And remember, these are only the ones I have encountered, I expect to have missed many more in the discussions I was not part of.
Disclaimer: I have enlisted the items from my vague and sometimes ambiguous notes, so there is not guarantee that I always picked the right thing.
