SC tech meetup session on Frontend technologies
First Talk: Observables - Streams On Steroids
Synopsis: Asynchronous control flows built one of the foundations for Node.js's widespread success. Tracing the execution path through all the callbacks increased the cognitive load, though.
"Reactive Extensions" to the rescue: apply multiple steps of business logic on each item - whenever it flows in.
The talk will include the TC39 proposal for Observables!
Speaker: Stephan Schneider, backend engineer Contentful
