On September 9th, Nate Adams will join us to talk about Reactive Extensions. Been wondering about them? Already know a bit? Already seen his talk? No matter what your level of knowledge, Nate’s well reviewed talk is worth attending!
Topic: Introduction to Rx – A prescription for Awesome Code
Reactive Extensions (Rx) is a library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs using observable sequences and LINQ-style query operators. In this talk, you’ll learn the basics about what Rx is and how you can start using it to make your code more responsive. No knowledge of Monads is required for this talk 🙂
Nate has been developing business applications for over 12 years. The last 9 years have been spent working primarily with C#. In addition to being incredibly dashing and ruggedly handsome, Nate is also very, VERY lazy. Because of this, he’s always looking for ways to leverage existing code and frameworks to increase productivity in his work. Some other things of note about Nate: 1) Nate has been known to do some amazing coding that he does not remember the next morning. 2) Nate is the “Coolness Czar” at his current company and flogs coworkers for not meeting his rigid coolness standards. 3) Nate always blames the Rules Engine. 4) Nate is known in three countries for his “luscious beard” and won last year’s beard/mustache growing contest at work with his version of the “monkey tail.”
If you plan on attending our meeting on September 9th, please RSVP.
