# A new series of blog posts distilled from material for Monadic Design Patterns for the Web

Fri, 2011-08-19, 08:48

Dear Scalarazzi,

In the series, i am not a monad i am a free algebra, i'm attempting to tell a story about some folkloric wisdom that most computer scientists (at least those in programming language semantics) enjoy as a kind of general ambient understanding, but that neither mainstream programmers nor mainstream mathematicians know much about as a general rule. Having this understanding at your fingertips, so to speak, is a significant aid to simplifying and organizing the veritable zoo of data structures and bringing some coherence to the many different ways of reasoning about them. Of course, this lays the groundwork for a significant pay-off of monadic structuring techniques.

The first three entries in the series have been published at the links below. As usual, all the examples are in Scala.

Best wishes,

--greg

- i am not a monad i am a free algebra (pt 2)
- i am not a monad i am a free algebra (pt 3)

I just came across your articles on Planet Scala and I really enjoyed reading bits of it. I'll be by the fireplace with a cup of tea and a 'Do Not Disturb' sign around my neck later on. Thanks!

Cheers,Erik
