Elements of Programming

Or, Alex Nelson’s working notes for programming.

You probably have come here by accident, as there’s really not much I have published worth reading.

Paraphrasing Wittgenstein, a good guide will take you through the more important streets more often than he takes you down side streets; a bad guide will do the opposite. In programming pedagogy, I’m a rather bad guide. Instead of trying to write some self-contained Bourbaki-esque programming site, I’ll just cover problems I’m currently facing in…whatever it is I do.

I also have a wiki of random notes on math and science. They’re mildly polished, but not presentable in papers. More polished materials may appear in my notebook.
