A 10-week in-person course
This class will follow and expand upon Bartosz Milewski's blog. There will be lots of diagrams and programming on the whiteboard!
In Bartosz's own words:
I got the crazy idea, around 2014, to write a book about category theory for programmers. Mind you, not computer scientists but programmers—engineers rather than scientists. The idea evolved into a blog, and now into a course. I can't deny that there is a huge gap between science and engineering, because I have worked on both sides of the divide. But I've always felt a very strong compulsion to explain things. I have tremendous admiration for Richard Feynman who was the master of simple explanations. I know I'm no Feynman, but I will try my best.
To follow the course you don't need to know a lot of computer science or mathematics but you will need to be an experienced programmer. You should know what generic programming and polymorphism are.
