I consider myself a pretty good *Mathematica* programmer, but I'm always looking out for ways to either improve my way of doing things in *Mathematica*, or to see if there's something nifty that I haven't encountered yet. Where (books, websites, etc.) do I look for examples of good (best?) practices of *Mathematica* programming?

In the introduction this link does not work: Introductory videos of various applications of Mathematica – MOON – 2014-11-09T17:25:13.707

This link seems to be broken: http://math.georgiasouthern.edu/math/computer/ABGMATHs1.pdf (in section "Tutorials").

67Apparently, this is the most edited post by a single person across all of the SE network. You've really done a remarkable job at maintaining it! – rm -rf – 2012-07-17T19:36:29.877

13Thanks, maintaining this list is a good way also to keep track of interesting posts on this site that summarize well some aspects of Mathematica. – faysou – 2012-07-18T11:50:56.373

Is there a way to download the videos from wolfram.com/broadcast? – becko – 2012-10-18T14:37:08.793

1@becko it's not too hard - like downloading YouTube videos, there are various ways. On Mac Safari, I set the user-agent to iPad before going to the page, then Download Linked File: this gets the mp4 download link. (No Flash for me!) – cormullion – 2012-11-07T15:22:54.757

@cormullion Got any tricks that work on Windows? I usually download videos from Youtube using a little program called Free Youtube Download. But that doesn't work on wolfram.com/broadcast (except for a few videos at wolfram.com/broadcast that are actually hosted on Youtube). – becko – 2012-11-07T18:15:07.013

@becko I'm not a Windows-er, but perhaps you could investigate switching useragent somehow - there's a tool for the Chrome browser (User Agent Switcher for Chrome) that might work...? – cormullion – 2012-11-07T19:55:49.653

@cormullion Thanks! I found the option to change the user agent and it works! – becko – 2012-11-07T20:41:00.207

Karl Unterkofler (https://homepages.fhv.at/ku/karl/mma.html) has collected a list of Mathematica timing benchmarks on various hardware platforms (Mac's + PC's). The list also shows an interesting history: from Mathematica version 2.2 up to 8.0.
