Greg Meredith, a mathematician and computer scientist, has graciously agreed to do a C9 lecture series covering monadic design principles applied to web development. You've met Greg before in a Whiteboard jam session with Brian Beckman.
The fundamental concept here is the monad, and Greg has a novel and conceptually simplified explanation of what a monad is and why it matters. This is a very important and required first step in the series since the whole of it is about the application of monadic composition to real world web development.
In part 3, Greg continues to take us on a monadic journey, en route to the design of a composable web stack from client to database. This series is specifically about monadic design patterns and not implementation details using Scala and asscoiated dev tools. Open your minds and let the design pattern knowledge in.
