Title: Rx-Helper - Write Decoupled, Streaming Realtime Apps with RxJS

***Note: This meetup has changed locations!***

Description: Come see how to use the power of RxJS to:

- Modularize your apps, building out from a core of framework-independent logic
- Stub out unknowns so you can get right to work on the essence of your application
- Have a Clean Architecture that allows you to swap out UI frameworks, persistence tiers, or any other component while leaving most of your program unchanged.

Like JQuery enabled a boom in productivity by paving over differences between browsers, Rx-Helper allows you to pave over differences between:

Client/server programming style
One UI framework and another
Data that's available now, and data that's available later

Speaker Bio: Dean Radcliffe has been web-developing since the 'table' tag was the new hotness. He lives in Evanston with his family, loves playing music, running and juggling, and loves to help people make whatever they can dream up.
