I just wanted to let you all know that I have started a community called compscibooks
that may be of interest to bayesnets
people. This is a discussion community for computer science books: textbooks, monographs, even fiction featuring topics in computer science. Anyone who would like to read or participate in discussions on CS books is welcome.
I would love to see reviews in the community, and will cross-post my reviews of CS1, CS2, graphics, AI, and other textbooks there. Topics include, but are not limited to, the list of interests
. One set of upcoming reviews features six current
Java books for a first course in computer science, which I am looking at with regards to a hypothetical overhaul of our CS program
BTW, any comments on the books I have slated for review, suggested additions to the list for graphical models of probability, or suggested criteria would be welcome. I'll take recommended criteria under consideration and any comments into account after I complete my reviews.
Thanks in advance for comments, and I hope to see you over in the community.
