The Category of JavaScript

The code we write everyday is full of boilerplate. We repeat the same code and structure over and over for every if statement we write, or anytime we iterate over an array.
By limiting ourselves to small subset of Javascript and by utilizing some knowledge from Abstract Math, we can represent these structures with special Algebraic Datatypes.
These ADTs allow us to break down complex flows and programs into small, digestible parts that can be reused and combined into other flows.
