Introduction to Reactive Extensions

Introduction to Reactive Extensions

Reactive Extensions (Rx) is a library from Microsoft which can be used to compose asynchronous and event-based programs using observable collections and LINQ-style query operators. Over the past few years, as developers increasingly try to understand and leverage concurrency and asynchrony, Rx has been gathering a lot of momentum in both its javascript and .Net formats. It can greatly reduce the time and complexity of creating those non-blocking user experiences and efficient communication pipelines. This talk will attempt to break down the barrier of entry for Rx which can seem quite daunting at first and hopefully help you get over the initial mental leap so you can make your own decisions on when and where you can utilise it.
