The first book in Bob Coecke’s series on applied category theory is out, and the pdf is free—legally, even!—until 8 February 2022. Grab a copy now:

• Noson Yanofsky, Theoretical Computer Science for the Working Category Theorist, Cambridge U. Press, 2022.

There are already books on category theory for theoretical computer scientists. Why the reverse? Yanofsky explains:

But it’s worth learning category theory, because it’s like a magic key to many subjects. It helps you learn more, faster.

You can use Markdown or HTML in your comments. You can also use LaTeX, like this: $latex E = m c^2 $. The word 'latex' comes right after the first dollar sign, with a space after it.
