Hi, Charlie! Good to see you here! I hope you dive in, start reading the [Lectures](http://www.azimuthproject.org/azimuth/show/Applied+Category+Theory#Lectures) and the comments on them, try some of the [Exercises](http://www.azimuthproject.org/azimuth/show/Applied+Category+Theory#Exercises), ask questions about them, [chat with people](https://forum.azimuthproject.org/categories/Chat), and generally soak up some ideas. This intro to category theory is a bit odd in that it starts out talking about preorders and posets. But these are very simple sorts of categories, which may make it easier to get a feeling for the key concepts of "left adjoint" and "right adjoint".
