Key Features

Get to grips with the core design principles of reactive programming
Learn about Reactive Extensions for .NET through real-world examples
Improve your problem-solving ability by applying functional programming

Book Description

Reactive programming is an innovative programming paradigm focused on time-based problem solving. It makes your programs better-performing, easier to scale, and more reliable.

Want to create fast-running applications to handle complex logics and huge datasets for financial and big-data challenges? Then you have picked up the right book!

Starting with the principles of reactive programming and unveiling the power of the pull-programming world, this book is your one-stop solution to get a deep practical understanding of reactive programming techniques. You will gradually learn all about reactive extensions, programming, testing, and debugging observable sequence, and integrating events from CLR data-at-rest or events. Finally, you will dive into advanced techniques such as manipulating time in data-flow, customizing operators and providers, and exploring functional reactive programming.

By the end of the book, you'll know how to apply reactive programming to solve complex problems and build efficient programs with reactive user interfaces.

What you will learn

Create, manipulate, and aggregate sequences in a functional-way
Query observable data streams using standard LINQ query operators
Program reactive observers and observable collections with C#
Write concurrent programs with ease, scheduling actions on various workers
Debug, analyze, and instrument Rx functions
Integrate Rx with CLR events and custom scheduling
Learn Functional Reactive Programming with F#
