I tried to understand Category Theory but was unable to do so...
I tried reading three books in regard to it and can understand the

first chapter and was unable to do any of the exercises in them...
However, I did see a few links that 'graphically' showed a Category and
another that showed some categories and how they were implemented in
Haskell - these made the most sense to me...
Since categories are the basis for Functors, Monoids and Monads - which are
extensively used in Haskell and implicitly used, I think, in Linq - I would
be very willing to participate in a project that showed categories and how
they are implemented in Haskell...
Just a thought...
I am an independent software consultant [been doing it for 30+ years].
I did a market evaluation of Haskell and Linq and found the following:
- there are page after page of Ling/C# jobs...
- I only saw 1 Haskell job...
It 'begs the question': is some commercial organization going to implement
Haskell as a product [I don't think it will be Microsoft, since they have
