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



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.
