SICP Structure and Interpretation Of Computer Programs, MIT's guide to MIT/Scheme. It's used as a textbook there. And if anyone wants to maybe write up a perl script that would take it and turn it into a pdf, that'd be lovely.

And someone post besides me and jedibebop, please.

MIT Opencourseware seems to mostly have assignments and videos of lectures. Is there a listing of all the actual textbooks they have in addition to Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs?

I haven't seen any other books, but I haven't been through the whole thing yet, so I'm not really sure.

Calculus For Beginners and Artists. But you can look through the lecture notes, and some of them have videos. But the vidoes might be in realmedia format.

http://arxiv.org/

Cornell's online library. It's mostly physics and mathematics and stuff, but there is a computer science section.

There's a *lot* of stuff on there about programming theory.

Could someone please sticky this? I find myself going back to this page a lot, and it's annoying to have to keep digging around for it.

That's an awesome book. I read 50 pages of it today.

It's basically a short summary of what's wrong with *nix, and why zealots defend it.

Things haven't changed a bit in 13 years. I was just reading the part about rm. Absolutely hilarious. :lol:

I read some of it a while back and thought it was a fairly good read.

You probably came across the same social bookmark or something I did a couple days back. I have to say, the whole free college thing has been passed around the web quite a bit lately, but this makes it pretty easy to find what you are looking for.

I have been through two complete lectures for Microelectronic Circuits by Professor Chang-Hasnain. Granted the first one was half fluff (who are you, breakdown of class demographics, etc...). So far so good though, I like that one the most, and will probably watch them all.

From what I have seen, this is the very best aggegator for this stuff bro. It is completely funded by William Hewletts foundation. Tags, tag clouds, user ratings, and reviews for courses. It is *brand* new. Less tha a couple weeks old (I get the newsletters and stuff, and happened to notice this). This one is k-12, higher university learning and adult secondary education. Maybe, just maybe, one day this site or one that builds off it will index all the free courses in the known world. For now, thousands will have to do. :D

Link again to be a dirty spammer.

It's a very good read, some of it is sad, but still true. I personally like Chapter 10
