Topic: Curing the asynchronous blues with the Reactive Extensions for .NET and JavaScript

In today's world, we want to create applications both rich in data and in behavior. The problem has been in the past that asynchronous and event based programming has been difficult, especially in the coordination between events and error handling. Come learn how the Reactive Extensions ("Rx") framework takes care of the difficult parts of asynchronous programming by viewing asynchronous computations as push-based collections. Instead of focusing on the hard parts, developers now can start dreaming about the endless possibilities of orchestrating and synchronizing computations at a high-level of abstraction. In this session we cover the design philosophy of the Reactive Extensions for .NET, rooted on the deep duality between the well-known iterator and the observer design patterns. From this core understanding, we start looking at various combinators and operators defined over observable collections, as provided by Rx, driving concepts home by a few samples showing rich applications that coordinate both external data and events in new and interesting ways. Democratizing asynchronous programming starts today.
