I’m republishing this here as I was worried about the reliablity of the original source here.
I hope Dr. Jager (a founder of BytePlay, Seedcamp Mentor, and Founding Investor of Playfire) doesn’t mind me repeating/creating redundancy of the content here. He has compiled an incredible list of great resources that I’m sure many of my readers here will find interesting.
Another useful list of resources is posted here at StartUpNorth by David Crow.
