12: Monoids

Into the icy maw of category theory starting with Monoids! In reality we find out it's not actually all that scary and there are some really fantastic things that we gain by understanding these basic categorical concepts. We now have a twitter account! Follow us at https://twitter.com/lambdacast We also now have a patron account if you're looking to support the show: https://www.patreon.com/lambdacast Show Notes: Haskell Diagrams library http://projects.haskell.org/diagrams/doc/quickstart.html https://vimeo.com/84104226 Chris Wilson pointed out that Haskell's Typeclassopedia has a nice chart of the relationship between Haskell's implementation of many categorical structures: https://wiki.haskell.org/wikiupload/d/df/Typeclassopedia-diagram.png
