no, but jesus fucking christ how is a book on Python that big? What the fuck do you need more than the online docs?
>>
Physical ones. I also have the gentoomans library.
>>
>>47149358
It's about systems programming, GUIs, and stuff. I'm trying to break out of this purgatory I'm in between beginner and intermediate.
>>
>>47149358
because it literally contains literally a printout of the docs.

I don't think even all of 2.x and all of 3.x docs would be that long.
>>47149393

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.

And Exploding the Phone isn't about phones, exactly. It's about phone hacking from the '50s to the '70s, niggas like Joybubbles and Captain Crunch.

Lol, is that what people call Mark Lutz?

My nigga. I used to think they looked stupid, but something about the style and uniform elements (the solid color title, the animal) is pleasing.

just joking but get rid of the steve jobs and you have a decent start

It really is. It's a sort of book-form of high fructose corn syrup.

But do O'Reilly & Associates produce the most comprehensive programming books to date?
>>
>>47149583
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.

Cool V-cube. Have you compared them to the original Professors Cubes? Do the move smoother?

Also how far have you gotten through Knuth's Set?

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

Final books.
>>
I just have all ebooks only physical ones I have are graphic novels.
>>
>>47149826
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
>>
>>47149770
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.
>>
>>47149844
You mean manga?
>>
>>47149895
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

If DC comics is manga then sure.
>>
>>47149919
Most definitely. If you could breeze through that book you'd be Knuth.
>>
>>47149935
Nice, Tim Wu's "The Master Switch". Damn good read.

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.
>>
>>47149982
Have you looked at any of the later volumes?
>>
>>47149982
I was surprised when I learned that he still hadn't finished it, and had an ETA of like 2020 or something.

Maybe by then I'll be able to read it. Hurr.
>>
>>47150006
No, can't say that I have...I hear people talk a lot about some really good shit in Volume 2 though.
>>
>>47150046
Same here. I, personally, hope to glean the most from Volume 4A
>>
>>47150070
Fight on through it brother.
Others will claim to read it, you will eventually say that you did

All i got for now, I got a book on DC electricity around here somewhere.
>>
>>47149460
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.
>>
>>47150255
it's also the only book I actually bought for uni instead of just renting for a semester

What's the fucking point when services change their GUI and features every week?

At least languages tend to have long-term support.
>>
>>47149770
Who the fuck recreationally learns math?

How the fuck is that interesting to you?
>>
>>47149339

I only have eBooks most of which I usually always pirate.
>>
>>47150339
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?

>>47150357
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
>>
>>47150370
How the fuck are you interested in math?
>>
>>47150381
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

...what, you thought /g/ was just for CS majors and help desk grunts?
>>
>>47150421
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.
>>
>>47150467
No /g/ is for casuals. Why the fuck would someone like math?
>>
>>47150514
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
