Tech Talk: (Yet Another) Introduction to Category Theory

Rui Gonçalves, our Lead Engineer, talking about Category Theory

We’re getting this ShiftForward Tech Talks show back on the road with the much needed guidance of Rui Gonçalves, our Lead Engineer by day, Maths enthusiast by night.

Rui wasn’t happy with ruining arrows and rings for all of us, so he decided to add another layer of grotesque to it and apply Category Theory to Haskell.

He softly puts it as “(…) a very short introduction to category theory focused on the base concepts for understanding the nature of abstract data types and how the underlying patterns are derived.”.

As you can see, he sounds like a regular person. The maniac.
