Strengthen your understanding of functional programming by looking at it from a fresh and unconventional perspective.

In this talk, we use GNU Radio to examine digital signal processing systems, and explore how we can use our understanding of functional programming to reason about unfamiliar systems such as software-defined radio by looking through the lens of category theory.

This talk was inspired by the paper "Categories for the Working Hardware Designer" by Mary Sheeran. Where Sheeran used category theory to derive theorems about a hardware description language, we will use it to reason about DSP systems.
