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.
