I would now like to find books like the one I didn’t write—books that offer a wide-ranging introduction to key computing skills for researchers in a hands-on way, rather than a deep dive into any single topic. The few I know of include:
- Haddock and Dunn: Practical Computing for Biologists
- Scopatz and Huff: Effective Computation in Physics
- Allesina and Wilmes: Computing Skills for Biologists
- Machlis: Practical R for Mass Communication and Journalism
- Paarsch and Golyaev: A Gentle Introduction to Effective Computing in Quantitative Research
If you know of others, I’d be grateful for pointers.
