As we all know, web development moves quickly. With frameworks like Angular 2 and React, we’ve seen a massive move in the industry from the imperative programming paradigm to the functional and reactive paradigms. To be successful in modern development, it’s paramount to have an understanding of how these paradigms work, and the tools that we can use to express them.
Did you know that Angular 2 uses Reactive Extensions for its asynchronous operations? If Angular 2 is your goal, then learning RxJS is an absolute must!
Even frameworks that don’t use RxJS directly, such as Facebook’s React, are modeled after this paradigm - and integrate with it flawlessly.
If you plan on moving forward with modern development, reactive programming should be your next step. With the knowledge in this course, you will gain confidence in working with modern frameworks and libraries. Even if you’re not interested in writing web applications, the concepts here apply everywhere. Reactive Extensions itself has many ports to other languages that you can easily move between!
The concepts in this course offer a new way to reason about code - and will apply no matter what language, platform, framework, or library you wish to use! If you want to be on the forefront of modern web development, then this course is your next step!
