I will discuss a recent proof of the Gorsky-Oblomkov-Rasmussen-Shende conjecture for (n,nm+1) torus knots, which generally expresses the Khovanov-Rozansky homology of torus knots in terms of representations of rational DAHA.  The proof is based off of a computational technique introduced by myself and Ben Elias, using complexes of Soergel bimodules which categorify certain Young symmetrizers.  We will summarize this technique and indicate how it results in a remarkably simple recursion which computes the knot homologies in question.
