I recently just asked a question about a very specific topic, looking for more resources from others who may have more expertise than me:
But upon reviewing some of the posts here on meta, I fear I might be off-topic, but on the other hand, it looks like I really have no place to go on the SE network either:
- How do I appropriately flag questions asking for links?
- Policy regarding questions on programming books, and the [books] tag?
I can see how a list of books for general subjects, or beginner subjects like "How do I learn C#?" Or does anyone have any good recommendations for learning Java (books/resources) could spawn lists of hundreds, if not thousands of books and lots of replies, and be used for marketing and all kinds of other not good stuff.
But in my case, the book/resources I'm requesting, is on a very specific topic, that I couldn't find anything on Google or PDFCHM or Amazon on readily. I did my diligence, looked through CodeGuru, CodeProject, MSDN, and other resources, and just wasn't finding anything.
Yet I know, we have experts on the subject, like Jon Skeet, and others, that might be able to point me to resources they have used.
Is this still off-topic at this point? We don't even specifically list books/resources as off-topic in our FAQ (that I could see, might have missed it???)
