What books, ebooks, pdfs, websites, videos, tutorials, etc., do you like and are useful to learn about free software, programming, or using a program?

Currently I am reading "An Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp"

It is well explained, easy, and for begginers :)

So what do you suggest?

At the moment I'm still reading Free as in Freedom: Richard Stallman's Crusade for Free Software,that explain the movement of fsf.
For programming i think is a good start GNU Make Reference Manual.

The book that made me purge Xubuntu and install Triskuellino two years ago. That book will always have a special place in my heart. :)

I was advised to learn python by the vast majority of hacker mates I am in contact with on jabber/mail/forum/etc

The book most of them recommended is ThinkPython ->

It did not work for me. I have no real interest in programming, I guess, or predisposition.

I am going to have to try that book. I was already looking into learning how to program and lisp seems nice.

Wikibooks tends to have some pretty good documentation on learning programming languages.
Other than that, the Gforth official documentation is really good if you're planning on learning Forth. Which you probably aren't. :p

I have been interested in Forth in the past, but I'm not sure if there are things like GUI or networking libraries for Gforth...

I have began the french website"Le site du zero" who unfortunately is now more a façade to sell Microsoft solutions.

I began to read "The little schemer" it's pretty neet.

Some people recommend "SICP", I read the preface and it is very interesting.

Found this some time ago
Lecture 1A | MIT 6.001 Structure and Interpretation, 1986
