Please note that due to technical difficulties that arose when giving this talk on Monday 25th October 09:00 MDT, Steve will be giving the same talk in this slot as well.

This talk will outline various algebraic types and structures, such as sum product and exponential types, structures such as monoids and groups, and higher order structures such as functors and monads. In particular, we'll look at why an API designer should be aware of them and supply operations that respect these structures' laws. Doing so will help you provide predictable APIs that can be reused more widely.
