Hello, I made and actually did all this (including the 'grad level' research electives, except for the coding theory book)
https://functionalcs.github.io/curriculum/

It's easier than it looks, it took me 3 years to do that. I did it about 3-4 hrs a day at first but then everything kind of snowballed and I finished it with only 1hr a day after the first year. These days I'm finishing The Art of Computer Programming series, I'm done up to book 4A and doing 4B draft at the same time. I just do it 20-30mins a day.

I cannot shill TAOCP enough, it totally changed me from amateur to professional computer scientist by just doing hundreds and hundreds of exercises. 20mins a day, for one year, it's all you need for the first book. Anyway, pick and choose what you want from this list and enjoy

I make money from cloning shopify apps, and I work P/T on https://turtle.ai/ though much more infrequently these days. I started out shilling myself on elance (now "upwork") as a jr developer and literally taking jobs from 3rd world countries for less than I would spend on lunch. I also work 2 days a week at my local university doing "ML" (statistics) for a cancer research lab making peanuts but it's research, and fun to do, and I don't need the money. The book in that above link, "Parallel and Sequential Algorithms" was directly responsible for the lab hiring me. Anyway anons I'm here to tell you to try this have a good day.

l can't comment on the actual classes, but the quote about Newton reminded me of The Ignorant Schoolmaster by Jacques Rancière. I think you would like it.

If you did it in three, I imagine it could be done it two if one maintained 4-5 hours daily? I'm at Valenza's Abstract Algebra book right now and it's difficult but ez at the same time. Love The Little Schemer/MLer. Anyway, thank you for creating it OP.

I was going to post a thread about potential programming certification and coding school programs that didnt involve throwing my money down the drain at a 4 year waste of time

while this is unaccredited, I guess I could do this for fun.

side question: recommend any coding schools?

are they worthless?
could I atleast get a entry level code monkey position?

What do you mean code schools? Like programming boot camps? Most of those are legit, but you only get out what you put in and they're more about tools and concepts (e.g. for front/back end web development) than the basic skills that you need to be a decent programmer.

Thanks for the curricula brah. Currently learning about learning. Real interesting stuff. I'm already a fast learner but maybe knowing how it works will help me git gud faster.

Thanks for the link, I could use a touch-up on specifically my math (esp. algrebra) and problem solving skills...

Lots of great reading in there. "Parallel and Sequential Algorithms" is really interesting

That's my summer vacation covered :-D

Simeltaneously doing the "How to learn" Course paired with the introductory Programming Course. I gave the "How to learn" course a 2 week head start.

What I like about it so far
  1. I already know a lot about anatomy, physiology and how the brain functions
  2. I already habitiually do 30 min-1 hour habits on a daily basis (DuoLingo, Guitar, puzzles, reading...) so this is easy to adopt.

Wish me luck, as I delve into this new frontier of CS
