Lambda and related features pervade Ruby and form the foundation of many awesome hacks. Yet, for those who didn't cut their teeth on Lisp or Haskell, the concepts may seem bizarre.

Justin Love will go over the many ways to access lambdas, as well as procs and blocks, what that means, and why you might want to use these features (collectively, 'closures') For dessert, there will be a review of some common tricks that put closures to work.
