Episode synopsis

You've already learned a great deal about Erik Meijer's latest programming creation, Rx, right here on Channel 9 (here and here, to be precise).

Well, wouldn't it be great to get the two key minds behind Rx in one place with one whiteboard? Yes, of course it would! Enter Software Developer extraordinaire and language compiler geek Wes Dyer and programming language design guru and LINQ co-creator Erik Meijer to dig into the "Live Labs Reactive Framework (Rx)" or ".NET Reactive Framework (Rx)". So, let's be honest here. The official name of this great technology has not been determined. But, it's just a name and the name is so much less interesting than what this technology enables and will enable in the future for software developers. So, forget about the exact branding of Rx. Just think of it as, well, Rx until the marketing people come up with an official naming scheme (that most likely will not be as cool as Rx, but c'est la vie...). 

Here, Erik and Wes focus on the core ideas behind Rx and dig into the geeky details of this observer-based programming model. Rx is deep (as in profound), as you must have gathered by now. Erik, of course, keeps the theoretical basis of all this squarely front and center so we understand the relationship between principles and practice.

Enjoy!
