The talk goes into detail on how Netflix uses Rx to:
- Declaratively build complex events out of simple events (ex. drag and drop)
- Coordinate and sequence multiple Ajax requests
- Reactively update the UI in response to data changes
- Eliminate memory leaks caused by neglecting to unsubscribe from events
- Gracefully propagate and handle asynchronous exceptions
There was a great turnout for the event and the audience asked some really good questions. We hope to see you at our next event!
