Title: 
First measurement of gamma at LHCb: one CP violation phase, many results
Abstract: 
The first measurement of the CKM angle gamma at LHCb has recently been released. This important milestone could be achieved through the combination of several different results. Why is the measurement of gamma needed? Why is it challenging? Which precision has LHCb achieved and what can be envisaged for the future? We will remind the case for a precise measurement of this fundamental parameter of the Standard Model and discuss present and future approaches.
