7 Sketches in Compositionality :)
thanks, I'll check it out :)
I also recommend 7 Sketches in Compositionality as well as the category theory posts on Tai-Danae Bradley's blog, https://www.math3ma.com/
Her booklet on applied category theory is a good introduction to many concepts that will be further elaborated on 7 Sketches: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1809.05923.pdf
Wanted to add a few things here:
I have personally been trying, without much success, to grasp Category Theory and find that it's much easier for me to understand algebraic structures. For some reason it isn't clicking. Either way, I'm pleased that the proliferation of good learning material has continued at pace.
