Resources I recomend Hi, The topics of recommended books & websites comes up very often, so rather than bringing it up every other class posting once seems to make more sense. Just to be clear, these aren't things you need to buy for the course, just things that I have found useful myself while programming.

For example, a typical medium pizza with two toppings costs 0.56 BTC.
