Category theory notifications

September 21, 2021

A long time ago I subscribed to email notifications from Bartosz Milewski’s blog. The last notification I received kicked off some potential energy that’s been building up for years, waiting for the right time.

So now I’m watching lectures on category theory and working through a book on Haskell.

I’ve learned a little Haskell on and off over the years. The result so far is that when I’m writing Python or JavaScript I use first-class functions and closures as easily as I use print statements.

I’m always messing around with different languages that I find interesting. APL is one of my favorites for when I just having fun learning something new. But I think there is a future with Haskell and at the moment I’m committed to gaining actual competence with the language.
