I'm interested in learning a few specific aspects of game programming and I wanted some recommendations. Are "recommendation" questions off topic here?
The Q&A site format is generally suited more towards finding answers to specific problems.
It's better to ask "How do I implement A*" instead of "Where can I find a tutorial on how to implement A*".
External resources are unreliable anyway, as links die, books go out of print, etc.
If you want to start from the ground up, there are already a ton of questions about that on the site and honestly I'd probably just close it as a dupe unless there's something specific in it that wasn't covered by other questions.
