What the Functor is a Monad

What the Functor is a Monad

This talk was delivered at AltConf 2016 and looks at how mathematicians look for similarities and "Same-ness" often using different language to help understand things. The notion of same-ness was formalized in Category Theory which and captured in Functors. This talk hopes to motivate Functors, Applicative Functors, and Monads and provide concrete examples from Swift.
