The last few years have seen significant progress in understanding the KPZ equation and its universality class, from the meaning of the equation, to a big picture conjecture of asymptotic fluctuations, to several exact formulas.  We will try to give a survey of some of this progress, and use recent results on flat exclusion to illustrate some of the exact solvability.
