Presentation: Code Reactions - An Introduction to Reactive Extensions

It’s typical in software development to pull data from different sources. However, in the modern world of asynchronous programs, data is being retrieved in real-time streams, akin to how developers handle events. Reactive Extensions is a library that makes it easier to code in a reactive, asynchronous, composable style. In this session, you’ll get a gentle introduction into this library and how its API works.
