Bart de Smet was in Dublin to talk about the Rx Framework in an event organised by Microsoft and Dublin Alt.Net. In this video Bart shares some of thinking behind the Rx and how it can be leveraged to solve common obstacles that we have all run into when doing asynchronous programming. The presentation walks us through how observables are based on the inverse of the existing IEnumerable interface. From this starting point Bart goes through some practical examples of using the various operators to keep your program's UI responsive while handling streams of data.
At Dublin Alt.Net we organize monthly meetings where we discuss issues that interest us in a loose, informal discussion-style environment. All software developers of every stripe are hereby extended an invitation to participate in the discussion or just come and see what all this Alt.Net stuff is about.
