- Adulting
- I did it!

## 3 Books

Probably I'll try to backup all this and replace it with links to files later.

### 3.1 Technical

It's not easy to list all the nice books, or even to decide which books to list, but here are some.

- Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation: nice and relatively short/simple introductory book about interpreters (including typing), a video linked from its introduction is nice also.
- The Unix-Haters Handbook: funny and interesting book, as far as I can tell after reading first 70 pages.
- Type Theory and Functional Programming - it has explicit enough title, the book is nice.
- Types and Programming Languages - the same topic.
- Software Foundations: similar subject, with exercises and examples in Coq. Works fine as reader's first book on topic of formal theorem proving.
- SICP - this one is quite popular, but will link it from here anyway.
- Dragon Book - widely known also, but linking too; this (the "Red" one), together with SICP, made me look at programming from a [one more] different side.
- The HoTT Book + prerequisites and helpful materials:
- Topology by Munkres
- Algebraic Topology by Hatcher
- Higher Inductive Types: a tour of the menagerie
- CW complexes
- CW Defn and Examples
- Wikipedia and SO are helpful, too

- Conceptual Mathematics: A First Introduction to Categories
- Andrew S. Tanenbaum's books: pretty lengthy, but very readable, and can be used as references.
- Lang's books for algebra, though they are not that easy to read.

### 3.2 Non-technical

Same situation as with technical books; just writing here something, without any defined system.

- Gödel, Escher, Bach: have not read it yet, but probably an interesting book.
- The Neverending Story: I have heard that it is an interesting book, but have a dozen of recommended books enqueued, so not sure if/when will try this one.
- A Brief History of Time – a short pop-science book.

## 4 Articles

Links to articles are dying surprisingly fast, I should fix them somehow.

### 4.1 Programming-related

#### 4.1.4 Functional programming

#### 4.1.5 Programming with dependent types

#### 4.1.6 Session types

It's useful to read about π-calculus (FAQ on π-Calculus) before reading about session types. λ-calculus knowledge is assumed, as pretty much in any other linked article here, and general familiarity type theories. Materials are ordered by complexity, from basic introduction to more advanced ones.

#### 4.1.7 Unsorted

Regular-tree expressions are to semi-structured data, such as XML and Lisp s-expressions, what standard regular expressions are to strings
