==================================================

- Generally I like materials that cover the core of: strings, mathematics, linear/associative arrays.
- Key concepts in programming languages are: assignments, if-statements, loops, functions.

- To be honest I don't really need any resources right now myself, but I thought it would be an interesting question to ask.
- Thanks for reading.
