Functional design patterns such as arrows, monads, functors, and monoids all come directly from category theory. To fully grok them, you’ll probably have to wade through the whitest white papers, fighting the mathematical syntax and abstract examples.

I’m hoping to demonstrate the ideas into javascript. I’ll be showing direct and practical applications for every day programming.

Brian Lonsdorf is CTO of looprecur, the CTO of looprecur. He speaks of programming functionally frequently at conferences and meetups around the bay area. He’s the last one you want at your hack night, although it’s entirely reasonable to assume he’ll show up to break your code and drink your beverages.
