I have a friend that wants to get into this whole computer thing. She isn't in it just to learn Python or whatever, but wants a broad view of the field. She does have a background in math.

I'm relying on your collective wisdom. Please reply with your entry-ish suggestions on anything computer related, from logic gates, to algorithms, to language theory, to anything.

Finally, kindly boost for visibility.

@trickster For someone with a math background, "Haskell Programming from First Principles" by Christopher Allen and Julie Moronuki will probably go down pretty smooth.

@mogwai_poet Thanks a bunch 😀 sounds like a good start. Your recommendation also, indirectly, reminded me of that nice Bloomberg article about code.

@trickster Glad to help! I don't think I saw that one, do you have a link handy?
