Thinking Reactively With RxJS 5

1 Day Workshop on Friday, September 30, 2016 (9am to 4pm)

Learn the basics of reactive programming with RxJS and Observables. In this session, you'll learn about RxJS and Observables, what they are and how they work. Then you'll learn how to "think reactively" and use RxJS solve common async problems in web applications.


RxJS is a framework-agnostic library for managing complex async tasks in a highly flexible way. You'll learn how RxJS is used at Netflix to save resources on your Netflix-enabled devices, and how you can use RxJS to accomplish the same goals in your applications.

Since RxJS can be used in any framework, this session will be taught generically without focusing on a particular framework like Angular, React or Ember.
