Have you seen this amazing talk given by Jarek Ratajski yet? Jarek helped us learn more about Lambda last year at Lambda World so if you haven't had the chance to watch it yet make sure you do as it's a great learn! Check it out below. 

Lambda Core - Hardcore

You all use lambda expressions. But what does it mean... Lambda? This talk will be about the story behind this term, from a little bit more scientific point of view. Church Lambda calculus, Entscheidungsproblem and incompleteness theorem. Almost all of that will be presented in Scala. And of course, you can later impress your friends with some impressive math tricks. There are going to be some very crazy code pieces shown such as a perfectly unusable implementation of boolean (based on lambda expressions).
