How do you manage the dizzying array of input sources, ranging from traditional UI events and external service requests to new user interface touch gestures and device sensor detections, while keeping your Silverlight and Phone applications responsive? In this session, you’ll discover how the Reactive Extensions (Rx) library simplifies the programming model by letting you declaratively compose increasingly complex asynchronous operations over these diverse data sources. We will demonstrate some practical uses of Rx for Windows Phone 7 by building a dice playing game including responding to user interactions, creating gestures from the device’s sensors, and making Asynchronous service calls. In the end you’ll learn how to coordinate pushing data around using Rx.

      terrible scound.

    • User profile image

      I'm sorry there are problems with the audio. I'll see what we can do to improve it. If anyone is interested, the code samples from the presentation are now available at http://www.thinqlinq.com/Downloads/RxWp7Mix11.zip

      Was really looking forward to this session, but its completely unlistenable. A real shame.
