It is easiest for me to learn about things gradually. If I am interested in a new area I start following various blogs and people on Twitter who are engaged in that field. My usual approach is to follow every resource that I can discover. I always have the option to delete them from my feeds if they prove to be of no interest to me.

However, it is not always easy to discover these resources and I am always happy to find a good starting point. So I decided to share the resources that I find helpful for various fields. These links might seem obvious to people already interested in these areas, but I do hope that they will be helpful for someone new to the game.

Free free to leave suggestions in the comments if you think that I missed something important.
