reactive programming

One of the biggest hurdles I have seen in software engineering is that it is hard to retrain your brain to think about reactive programming. We don't tend to complete tasks from a reactive approach therefore our code tends to also not follow reactive thinking. In this talk I want to go through a few approaches to start thinking about your code from a reactive point of view so that it become second nature to think through the pieces of any application from a reactive approach. While I am an Angular developer I will also provide examples written in other frameworks so that this talk will not be framework dependent.


This talk will have something for people of all skill levels. A general understanding of coding or at minimum an interest in coding would be helpful

Take Aways

  • learning to think reactively
  • Stop coding imperatively
