List of free programming books

On the heals of my Learn how to program with MOOCs blog post, Hacker News this morning had a link to a fabulous resource for people who want to learn how to program but also don't want to spend $$$ on hideously expensive programming tomes.

List of free programming books

It's a fairly comprehensive list of computer programming books freely available on the internet. If you ever wanted to learn a Python or wanted to see what the Ruby programming language was all about, or you just wanted to brush up on your C/C++ skills, there's something there for almost everyone.

There are also language agnostic books in the list that will help you learn about Agile programming or if you were curious about the essentials of metaheuristics (whatever that is), there's a book here for you.
