    Reactive Animations Using RxJS



    How we can use RxJS to achieve Reactive Animations. The overall idea is capturing multiple streams of events into a single stream, and then emit those values over to CSS creating animations. We will cover Web Animations API and how we can use RxJS together with field-tested animation techniques providing examples for CSS transitions/animations and SVG. We will also study browser compatibility and performance to achieve reliable and smooth animations. Let's bring our RxJS skills to the awesome world of animations!

    Visualizing Observables and Their Events



    When building an application using Rx the Observable chain can become rather large. Being able to see the data flow makes it significantly easier to debug the code and understand what is happening. The structure, the subscriptions and events can be tracked and visualized. Virtual Time can be leveraged to re-run the execution, or to extract a test case from the actual input events. Every Rx is built with the same core concepts, so we can support every platform. This is the story about the need for, the creation of, and using a Reactive Extensions debugger.

    Developer and musician; once from Australia, now from New York. My heroes are those who lead by example, inspiring others to action.



    The Sound of Data



    Marble diagrams are a great way to visualize how Rx operators work in constant time. But what if we introduced time back into these diagrams? If music is just data across time, what music could we create with Rx to better help us “auralize” the vast array of operators out there? Join me as we combine western music theory with RxJS and a node REPL to journey into fun new ways of creating music with data.

    Michael Stonis

    Mobile Solution Architect and Xamarin MVP at Eight-Bot, where he focuses on building amazing mobile apps for enterprises using Xamarin and Microsoft solutions.



    Be Lazy, Do More and Look Like a Rockstar Using Reactive Extensions For Xamarin Apps



    What if I told you that you could build better mobile apps, write less code and look awesome all at the same time? Well, it's true and it's all possible thanks to the power of the Reactive Extensions. In this session, we will look at some tips and tricks that we can implement in our Xamarin iOS, Android, and Xamarin.Forms mobile applications to solve everyday issues like network connectivity, data caching, memory management. We'll also discuss mobile development techniques using the Reactive Extensions that save you time and frustration and so much more.

    Oren Novotny

    Principal Architect at BlueMetal, co-maintainer of Rx.NET and several other .NET OSS projects.



    Increase Your App's Responsiveness with ReactiveUI



    User interfaces are prime candidates for reactive programing. They deal with user events, data points that easily translate into streams of intent – clicked this, typed that. In this talk we'll introduce ReactiveUI and explore some demos showing how ReactiveUI can improve your app's responsiveness by handling common UI tasks in a functional-reactive way. ReactiveUI is an MVVM framework built on top of Rx.NET that supports cross-platform development with Xamarin for iOS, Android, macOS, UWP and WPF applications.

    Tamir Dresher

    Author of Rx.NET in Action. He is a Senior Architectat CodeValue Israel and a lecturer at the Ruppin Academic Center.



    Testing Rx Code and Abstracting Time and Concurrency



    Rx helps us solve many complex problems, such as combining different streams and reacting to events that involve timing aspects. However, solving those problems with code is not really "done" unless you can validate and assure your results. In this session, you'll learn the Rx.NET testing utilities and the patterns that make testing Rx code not only easy but also a lot of fun.

    Thomas Nield

    Author and speaker at O'Reilly Media. Tactical business developer at Southwest Airlines.



    RxJava Concurrency and Parallelization



    This session will provide a thorough explanation on how to leverage concurrency in RxJava, and demystify two operators that are often misunderstood by Rx newcomers: subscribeOn() and observeOn(). These operators will be shown in practical examples and how they maximize the benefits of reactive programming. We will also cover the different types of schedulers and how to fine-tune them for specific tasks. Finally, the talk will cover how to parallelize emissions as well as leverage the switchMap() to cancel and redirect work.

    Thomas Visser

    Mobile Lead at Highstreet, building apps with RxJava and RxSwift.



    Reactive MVVM

    RxSwift / RxCocoa


    RxSwift is a great tool for building your MVVM architecture. The three components of MVVM map nicely to concepts from RxSwift. The model layer is where Observables are created, the view model combines and transforms Observables and the view Observes the result. There's no one right way to use RxSwift or implement MVVM. However, the details of your implementation and the boundaries you draw determine how concise and testable your code will be. In this talk, Thomas will walk through various approaches he's tried in the past year and finally discuss a clever approach that he's been using in the past months.
