Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) is a relatively young paradigm for building applications. You may have heard that The Cool Kids™ like GitHub and Netflix are hooked on FRP. What you might not know is why, the history and how you can get started with this powerful model.

Functional and Reactive Programming talks are usually Super Boring™ but in this talk I’ll be taking academia out and replacing it with Real World Experience™. I’ll review common FRP patterns, pitfalls to watch for, and touch on ReactiveUI - a .NET/Xamarin framework to help ease your entry into FRP.

Most demos will be in C#, but we’ll do short reviews of FRP libraries in JavaScript, Obj-C, Java and possibly others.
