Great, thanks for this note John!
This [meetup](https://www.meetup.com/Category_Theory/) looks promising. In particular, every other week there is a meeting to go through passages and exercises from:
* Steven Roman, [An Introduction to the Language of Category Theory](https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Language-Category-Textbooks-Mathematics/dp/3319419161), Springer Compact Textbooks in Mathematics, 2017.
I've just joined the meetup, and encourage other Azimuth people who want to get ramped up on basic category theory to give it try. The book appears to be very clear in its introduction to category theory.
I'll post some notes on the reading passage and exercises for the next meeting, which is a zoom on Sunday May 3.
