Building Event-Driven UIs with Rx (1 Day Workshop)

A session at React San Francisco 2014

Friday 21st November, 2014

9:00am to 5:00pm (PST)

Everything is a stream - so learn to think reactively! You need the skills to reason, visualise and communicate about concurrent and asynchronous problems. Join Lee Campbell and Matt Barrett to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and rewards of asynchronous and concurrent coding.

This course is a practitioner’s guide to Reactive Extensions, teaching you to create elegant solutions through educated design decisions. Through a combination of programming exercises and discussion, you will learn how to think in Rx. This session will cover application development for both client and server, with different programming challenges aimed at thick client, web, and server technologies.

The workshop will have programming challenges in Scala, Java, Javascript and C#. It will be a mix of lectures, sample code and hands on coding challenges. Participants will be encouraged to interact with the presenter and each other.

Participants should provide their own laptop, have a working understanding of at least one of the targeted languages and an IDE and test runner that they are familiar with.
