Whenever sites like this pop up, the really valuable thing to me is finding a book that's a synthesis of two topics. I can find many specific books with code examples here for things like financial maths, portfolio management, etc.

Seeing Data-Centric Introduction to Computing (https://dcic-world.org)

It's written by Shriram Krishnamurthi, who is a really interesting researcher who cares quite a lot about CS education.

It's worth pointing out that this site may link to copyrighted material.

If this is just a link to a bunch of PDFs, then presumably PDF malware is an issue here. I would have thought computer books would be a fine vector to choose if you were trying to compromise websites and business systems.

Is there any comparable resource that also (explicitly) includes copyrighted material? I believe a curated list containing the "cream of the crop" of a specific domain would be an excellent resource for anyone starting out.

There's also freetechbooks.com , which is a database of links to actually Freely available / Open Access books , which includes the license information.

I checked the OP link. Clicking on any category pops up an ad that needs to be explicitly "closed". It happens again and again as you navigate through the site. Annoying like hell.

What a cool website. Quite surreal to see fresh content presented in a mid-2000s style!

Content littered with ads can not be considered free. The difference from traditionally paid content is that customers pay with their attention and virtual purchasing power instead of spending money directly.

Nonetheless ads obviously allow access for all.

I prefer libgen for free computer books :)
