Berkeley Martinez: React and RxJS
React has ushered in a fundamental change to web application development: Utilizing views that react to data changes in a functional manner. This change has led the front-end community to embrace React with increasing optimism. But there is still one thing that React is not very good at: asynchronous data fetching.
Reactive Extensions for JavaScript (RxJS) solves the hardest problem with JavaScript: asynchronicity. It does this by combining functional programming concepts and event-based data streams.
Learn how to combine synchronous and asynchronous code flawlessly using RxJS and take your real-world React app to the next level.
