Python is a great general purpose programming language that's easy to learn and understand
Haskell is a powerful functional programming language that's fast and concise and has a brilliant type system
R is a ...language... with an unparalleled set of statistics libraries (and, okay, some people use it for other stuff too)
GrADS is a lightning fast system for querying gridded (climate, environmental, etc.) data
Software Carpentry teaches scientists how to program and use tools like version control and the shell


EcoData Retriever, a tool for quickly downloading and setting up databases from publicly available ecological datasets
Ecological Data Wiki, a catalog of ecological data sources

Some of my favorite blogs
