Great new book out in early release ebook format at!

Here's the blurb:

"Finally! Effective Computation in Physics is a manual for
starting up or honing your programming and software skills even
though your background is in the physical sciences or
engineering. This book is your field guide to computing and
research in the context of the work that you are already
doing. We cover all of the big topics that you'll need, from how
to program in Python, how to use important Python third party
libraries such as NumPy and Pandas, how to interact with the
command line, how to write quality publications using LaTeX, and
we even dive into the social aspects of science and software
development by teaching you Git and GitHub.

This book is aimed at people from all physics-based fields. We
take this to mean physics, astronomy, astrophysics, geology,
geophysics, climate science, applied math, biophysics, nuclear
engineering, mechanical engineering, material science, electrical
engineering, and more!"
