Reactive Programming: Why You Should Care and How to Write More Future Proof Code


This talk explains reactive programming in its simplest form, explores the various places we see reactive programming paradigms appear in our every day code, and discusses the future of reactive primitives in TC39 and WHATWG.We'll walk through code samples using RxJS, a push based primitive and domain specific language that sits on top of JavaScript and you'll see just how easy it is to create a more composable application architecture and use reactive programming paradigms to essentially future proof your code from common JavaScript fatigue. You'll see how concepts and paradigms/code remain consistent from framework to framework and how easy it becomes to copy paste 90% of our code from framework to framework and what you can accomplish with the arsenal of lego bricks RxJS provides with its declarative syntax and intrinsic portability.
