I'm developing software for fun and for profit already a long time. I'm a trained physicist and I worked a couple of years in research (PhD, CERN, detector development for particle physics). I've since changed into software development again at at private company. I'm interested in math in general and in category theory in particular, because I'd like to "level up" my skills by enlighten the foundations of my thoughts. I.e. I'd like to complement "gut feeling" with math.

My plan is to work through the 7 sketches book first without focussing on the exercises, because I first want to know the goals and the important waypoints. Then I'd like to do a second pass of going through the paper where I delve into the depths.
