Ian Griffiths By Ian Griffiths Technical Fellow I

I've been a huge fan of the Reactive Extensions for .NET (or Rx.NET, for short) since they first appeared over a decade ago. They offer a reactive style of programming that has become very popular in client-side programming (both in WPF, and also in the world of the Web thanks to RxJS, the JavaScript version of Rx), but they are much more broadly applicable than that. In fact their origins are largely server-side.

I'll be speaking about Rx at a dotnetsheff online meetup on Tuesday 4th August. I'll talk about the core ideas behind Rx, and why it's one of the most important libraries for any .NET developer to know about. I'll be showing a real-world example using Rx to process data from a medical monitoring device, and deliver it through an Azure IoT hub to allow online analysis.
