Mathematics Lectures for Software Engineers: Category Theory by Tom LaGatta

Mathematicians and computer scientists have been investigating theoretical aspects of software engineering through the lens of category theory. Many universities have begun to introduce category theory in graduate-level computer science courses.

In this talk, Tom LaGatta from NYU presents a basic introduction to category theory. You'll learn some of the basic concepts and engage in the debate about practical use cases for abstract, categorical thinking.

By the end of this talk, you'll understand how to begin to use categories in your own work.


This talk was presented at the LispNYC Meetup at Meetup HQ.
