## Making your brain tingle: Explaining Monads

My attempt at explaining monads It is an unwritten law, that everybody learning Haskell sooner or later has to write a tutorial or explanation of the topic of monads. (The fourth monad law.)1
So here is my attempt at explaining monads, I will try to give an intuition on what monads are from the practical view of a developer. I’m going to use examples in Haskell, so yes, this time I’m going to assume, some basic knowledge of Haskell – but a seasoned developer might still be able to figure out the essence of the examples without learning Haskell.
