Functional Programming Patterns

If you don't know that monoids are endomorphisms, and that a monad is just a monoid in the category of endofunctors, it's worth reading Functional Programming Patterns (BuildStuff'14) slide deck.

I'm just impressed that this is the best explanation of monads, monoids and endofunctors I've seen, along with stretching my brain about how I can better use the procedural languages I currently plod along with.
