Philly ETE 2014 – Jafar Husain – Reactive Javascript at Netflix

In this talk we’ll be exploring the Reactive Extensions (Rx) library which allows us to treat events as collections. You’ll learn about how Netflix uses Rx on the client and the server, allowing us to build end-to-end reactive systems. We’ll also contrast Rx with Promises, another popular approach to building asynchronous programs in Javascript.
