Christopher Bremer, “Types and Categories the ‘Easy’ Way”

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

Free

There is a series of books by Zed Shaw called “Learn <X> the Hard Way” for X = Python, Ruby, etc. These books encourage the reader to embrace the nitty gritty of software development, put their hands on the keyboard, and code. I’m sure such a talk could exist for category theory and types and that it would be glorious. This is not that talk!

I will give a feel-good talk about category theory and why you might care about it. No jargon, no complicated examples, no technical caveats, all fluff! Think of it as the kind of math you can write down on a napkin at a cocktail party (as long as your counterpart doesn’t think too hard about it). Really, the only prerequisite is that you have a vague idea of what a “function” is and what a “set” is. I’m even going to try to keep things under 15 minutes!

Bio: Chris is a software engineer working in the energy industry. Previously, he was a mathematician studying algebraic geometry and an amateur jazz musician. He lives north of Houston with his family where he enjoys thinking about math and programming, listening to jazz, and reading.
