Lambdas and the related property of closure can be powerful tools, and they lie behind a lot of magic in Ruby (as well as other languages) Unfortunately, these tools are often misunderstood by those who didn't cut their teeth on Lisp or Haskell. The talk will cover the most common syntax, dive into the conceptual underpinnings, and go over a number applications.
