I am now considering about studying functional programming from the viewpoint of category theory. There are a lot of books about functional programming and category theory, I want some suggestions regarding some comprehensive books and reference materials (like online notes, courses etc)that would contain category theory viewpoint rather than plain functional programming. I have a solid background in Abstract Algebra,commutative algebra, functional programming and bit of category theory too.

I'm missing a few, there are applications of category theory from everything to domain theory to database management.
