What is CCG?

Sadly there is no good intro to CCG that is geared at Computer Scientists that I'm aware of, but hopefully a coherent picture can be constructed without too much effort from the following links:
My Thesis: Chapter 3
Mark Steedman's CCG Page and NASSLI Tutorial or for the adventurous: The Syntactic Process
