|Publication Date:||29 July 2016|
Get up and running with reactive programming paradigms to build fast, concurrent, and powerful applications
About This Book
• 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
Who This Book Is For
If you are a .NET developer who wants to implement all the reactive programming paradigm techniques to create better and more efficient code, then this is the book for you. No prior knowledge of reactive programming is expected.
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#
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.
Style and approach
This is a concise reference manual for reactive programming with Rx for C# and F# using real-world, practical examples.
