Here's a collection of resources I started to collect for a friend who

wanted to learn Mathematica. As it grew bigger It thought it would

interest other people.

Of course it's not exhaustive so feel free to reply with related

links.

Basic advice for people new to Mathematica:

avoid iterative programming using loops like For, use instead

functional programming functions Map, MapThread, FoldList ... and pure

functions. This makes the code cleaner and faster.

Great job indeed!

I would like to mention the book:

"Mathematica=C2=AE:A Problem-Centered Approach"

by Roozbeh Hazrat

A little book (only 203p) that nevertheless succeeds in teaching

fundamentals of programming in Mathematica through well chosen

examples from number theory make it thus easily accessible.
