comment Is there a canonical book on mathematics for programmers?
@Mike, I don't think researching similar problems and trying to understand the underlying concepts well enough to attack the problem is cheating. You're learning more by "cheating" this way then not doing all that research.

@delnan, maybe but I wish there was something more catchy! You could also say "idiomatic python code".
