RxJS: Functional Reactive Programming in JavaScript

Asynchronous programming presents unique challenges. Modern JavaScript Applications run in the browser environment. User events and data from the server arrive endlessly, and at times your program does not imperatively choose. One way that leading companies (such as Netflix with their many streaming video clients) solve these problems is with the technique of reactive programming. This powerful pattern allows your JavaScript program to deal with asynchronous events very effectively. The open source RxJS library (Reactive Extensions for JavaScript) allows us to do this elegantly.

Please join us for an introduction to functional reactive programming concepts, and practical code examples for using them in your HTML5 web applications.

Chris Harris is an avid developer on both the server in .NET and on client side using HTML5 techniques. His 2D Light Engine, Krypton, has been used by indie studio Size Five Games to achieve shadow effects. He joins us between his work as a Software Developer at RightNow Ministries, and finishing his Computer Science degree at Texas A&M.
