Has anybody studied category theory?

Post by 2dr » Sun Sep 05, 2021 1:03 am

I am trying my hand at category theory. I have found many resources that explain jargon with more jargon which leads me round in circles.

I have tried “Category Theory for dummies” to more or less the same effect. Does anybody know how to get me started? I know that there are objects represented by nodes and arrows that may be composed. Then I hit a Jargon wall.

Please help.
