Lots of Links [Jul. 7th, 2005|10:48 pm]

I've just found a site that is quite interesting from a techy point of view:
http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/ - I'm sure the root of it is good as well... I just followed it from a pdf I got, Dive Into Python. (Guess what language I'm trying to learn?)

In particular two of their new sites:
Python for Fun (I'm expecting "Python for Profit" to be the sequel, then "Python for Fun and Profit" to be the compilation)
Socratic Electronics - the idea of which just appeals. Hell, even the name just appealed to me.

So, the next bit is I found a link to Sacred Texts, and wow, there's a lot of stuff. But looking at one bit under the LGBT section, I think I've found the source of "The Origin Of Love" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Looks like it'll be an interesting read.

Dive into python is a fantastic book. I learned python from it by reading it online, then I bought the book. What sets this book apart from normal books teaching you a language is this book assumes you know another language already. Most books take until page 100 before they introduce you to the complex topic of if blocks. Dive into Python literally dives in. All the syntax etc. is covered in the first chapter, and moves quickly on to more advanced (ie fun) topics. More books should be like this.

If you like free books, check out The Assayer, a site that hosts reviews of free online books (and hence provides the links to them), and my del.icio.us 'ebooks' tag.
