Rx v2.0 Beta is here! Who better to tell us all about it - and in great detail at the whiteboard - than Bart J. F. De Smet. This is a long interview, so take your time. Watch it in parts or at one sitting. There was no easy way to dice this up into separate videos, so we give it to you as it happened - in one take. As usual, Bart's explanations are thorough and clear. Enjoy. Learn. Rx has a come a long way and there's a great deal of new, improved reactive goodness in 2.0! Congratulations to Bart and team.
