### Contributing
Catlab is experimental software and is missing many features, big and small.
Moreover, the computational aspects of category theory are generally
underdeveloped, both theoretically and practically. On the flip side, this means
that there are lots of opportunities to do new and interesting things! Applied
category theory is a young field and is likely to grow significantly.
We welcome contributions and are committed to supporting prospective
contributors, regardless of experience level with category theory. If you are
interested in contributing, please let us know.
Applied category theory is a young and growing field, and Catlab is too the
subject of ongoing research and development. This means that there are lots of
opportunities to do new and interesting things!
We welcome contributions to Catlab, regardless of your experience level with
category theory or the Julia language. For more information, see the
[CONTRIBUTING](CONTRIBUTING.md) file.
