Hi Rob, Paul, All,
Here’s the set of slides, RsydMonadsIntro.pdf, from the Intro to Monads.
They are more of a warm-up to the why of monads.
They may not self-explain very well.

The screens subsequent are an adventure towards dry examples. There be dragons!
Ping me for a link to that: @paradisaeidae

The dry gems are the components of which dry-monads is one of.

This one takes the Galated example to ‘Task’.

Happy to do a 5min Q&A at the next.


Thanks for inviting me to speak! Here are my slides for my Upgrading to Rails 5 talk https://speakerdeck.com/dondonz/upgrading-to-rails-5
