Category Theory is one of the most abstract branches of mathematics. It is usually taught to graduate students after they have mastered several other branches of mathematics, like algebra, topology, and group theory. It might therefore come as a shock that the basic concepts of category theory can be explained in relatively simple terms to anybody with some experience in programming. That's because, just like programming, category theory is about structure. Mathematicians discover structure in mathematical theories, programmers discover structure in computer programs. Well structured programs are easier to understand and maintain, and are less likely to contain bugs. Category theory provides the language to talk about structure, and learning it will make you a better programmer.

About the Author

I have been educated in Poland, where I got my PhD in Theoretical Physics. I had several postdoc positions in Europe and in the United States. Then I suddenly found myself working for Microsoft designing and implementing a search engine. That didn’t work very well, since Microsoft was in denial about the Internet. I quit and started my own micro company, Reliable Software, which makes a distributed version control system. I wrote a book “C++ in Action, Industrial Strength Programming in C++.” I started digging into Computer Science, enlisting in graduate courses at the University of Washington. I became fascinated with multithreading and joined Walter Bright and Andrei Alexandrescu in designing and implementing the D programming language. Interest in C++ template metaprogramming and concurrency naturally led me to Haskell, and then to category theory.
