20:30-21:00 Using go to understand the Y Combinator / Jeremy Huiskamp
The book The Little Schemer explains the Y Combinator, but this is a difficult piece of code to reason about for someone new to functional programming. Fortunately, scheme can be translated quite easily to go, so that we can use a more familiar environment to explore how it works.
