There are tutorials going up in the tutorials section for those interested. Within those you will find very basic information about each topic with links to other resources. If there are tutorials that would be useful, leaves comments or send me an email.
For those interested in a general computing book for biologists, I can also recommend Practical Computing for Biologists by Haddock and Dunn. It covers topics that are in the tutorials in more depth as well as topics that are not going to be covered in the course at all (e.g., vector vs. raster figures).
