Let me see your technolo/g/y books, nignogs.
>inb4 hurr Python sux durr.
Physical ones. I also have the gentoomans library.
I don't think even all of 2.x and all of 3.x docs would be that long.
so it's like 400 pages of trying to contort python into something it's not?
Python is a great jack of all trades. Stop trying to make it something it's not.
Maybe if I didn't spend all my money on books I could buy a better phone or camera
Depends on the book. That python one is more than comprehensive. the AngularJS assumes a lot of prior use and experience. I definitely like them along with Deitel & Deitel, and wrox
Varied interests and professional background reflected here.
Engineering physics & aero degrees. Computer science and programming interests me.
Here's the first part of shelf 1.
Some non-tech books mixed in here but the hell with it, I'm not re-shelving things just to look good
Haven't compared to professor's cubes.
I won't be a liar and say I've worked my way through all of Knuth. I got it for Christmas and I've read a decent chunk of Volume 1 but I keep getting sidetracked to go off and learn more math. My background is engineering, not comp/sci, so my discrete math is a bit lacking. I shall not be deterred though.
Here's the start of the next shelf up.
I highly recommend it. Also check out his Lectures on Computation, he goes into the physical side of computation, it's a different kind of approach than you may be used to.
Next part of shelf 2
I have a significant chunk more that I keep at my desk at work and rotate in/out as they become more or less relevant to what I'm doing there. References there tend to be more applied EE and MATLAB references
I got it the same time. My math is certainly lacking for such an undertaking. I have a great understanding on multi-variable calculus and some (very little, really) Linear Algebra.
I view it more as a long term reading project. I certainly didn't chew my way through fluid mechanics in a month, and Knuth's stuff is denser, in a good way, than any text I ever saw in graduate fluid mechanics
even Knuth didn't breeze through writing it. He will certainly die before he "completes" it, a scenario I already dread more than fucking George R.R. Martin kicking it before he finishes the Game of Thrones books.
All i got for now, I got a book on DC electricity around here somewhere.
you fucker, that's the same c++ book used at my uni
It's a pretty o.k... I think I learned more from the awesome (but some consider to be scary) prof than I learned from the book... but still it's cheap, big, and teaches what needs to be taught. Solid 9/10 imo.
I'm that guy that is the nerd in a room full of nerds. Not even remotely ashamed of it, either. How the fuck is learning shit that you're interested in NOT appealing to you?
I also have about 30 gigs of technical ebooks
No hopes that I will ever read everything I have in my lifetime but at least I will never be bored
I just am. Obviously I'm not going to give you an answer that satisfies you. I was insane enough to get a masters degree in fluid mechanics so clearly advanced math doesn't make me run in terror
Just curious, does it bother you finding a job? I don't mean it in a negative sense, but I've seen someone enjoy studying (supposedly like you). He's gotten top grades, huge scholarships, but he's 35 and still in school. He's fine money wise since his father is filthy rich, and he has enough government bonds under his name to have a $75000 yearly (salary), but he can't hold a job for shit.
I work for a very large company that you have heard of making things designed to kill people. I am not ZOMG RICHFAG but I make a very comfortable living and enjoy my life, and I like to learn
