Learning to Code : The Seven Kerfuffles Of Online Tutorials
Krystyna Ewing

You can also add this F# 3.0 programming book by Chris Smith: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920024033.do?sortby=publicationDate

Although we’re now well into F# 4.0, the fundamentals still apply and many F# developers who are senior level devs still rely on this book which is a great learning resource.

And I would also add another kerfluffle: No one ever tells you that despite all these great open source tooling options out there (which may be the only option available to you when you’re jobless and poor and don’t have any money to afford licensing fees to use IDE’s like Microsoft’s Visual Studio), the particular programming language you’re trying to learn may rely too heavily on a particular IDE that you can’t get and use for one reason or another (i.e. can’t afford the licensing fees for the IDE, the IDE is hostile to your OS and general dev environment, etc.).

I rely heavily on books and if I need to see more, I’ll go for a tutorial which illustrates the example I need to see in action. I would recommend video courses at Pluralsight or Lynda.com as a complement to the programming books.
