@miramarco Thank you for this! I need to crunch some quantitative methods before grad school!
@RC You're welcome!
@miramarco So many books, so little time ...
@miramarco This is a great list of titles!
also a reminder that springer is fuckfujf horrible but take the free books lol
I'm aware, but they still have a disgustingly big monopoly on knowledge that's usually hidden behind a paywall
+ they also do that fun thing where you make someone pay to get their study published in a journal and then take money from anyone who wants to read it without authors ever seeing any of that
@miramarco thank you!!!
@miramarco for any nerds reading this and use R
Code to access and download all of them
looks like someone made a Google Drive repo of them!
@venko Wow, thank you for sharing this! Saves a lot of time! :)
@miramarco thank you for this! Definitely going to grab a bunch of these, especially the LaTeX book I saw a ways down.
@emacsomancer whatever really. I liked using it for my diss but I've forgotten most of the syntax now, 6 years out... happy to take any recs you have!
@emacsomancer thank you! Will check these out when I get on my laptop. I used xelatex and polyglossia for my diss, as I think I mentioned to you awhile back (probably nearly a year ago when we first met; tempus fugit!). Fun stuff.
I hope all is well in your corner of the kosmos, by the way!
@emacsomancer ahhh for sure. I hope it's a good crazy at least. And def hope you stay safe when school starts again. I am worried about all my teacher friends for the upcoming AY.
I'm well, been a busy week but things overall are good. Working 100% remote still but able to help clients, so that's been nice. Enjoying a chill weekend with my wife now. Glad to hear from you, it's been awhile!
@miramarco Thank you for this. I always enjoy a new textbook on a topic that I haven't explored before.
DOWNLOAD ALL THE KNOWLEDGE
@miramarco Thanks for the tip! I noticed that they also released textbooks in German, so I hacked together a small script to convert all lists from the blogpost into Markdown: https://github.com/7adietri/springer-nature-free-textbooks
@miramarco Thank you so much! I needed that plant physiology book!
@miramarco this just saved me $150 for a Java textbook.
