29: Reactive Extensions

The Reactive Extensions (Rx) is a library for building async and event-based programs using observable sequences & query operators. Developers can use Rx to represent asynchronous data streams with Observables and query those data streams using LINQ operators. Rx can  utilize Schedulers to parameterize concurrency asynchronous data streams.


Simply put, Rx = Observables + LINQ + Schedulers.


Rx comes in many flavors and there are a lot of resources out there. Microsoft has open sourced this interesting and powerful way to work with async data streams so that we can all contribute and benefit from its strengths & weaknesses.Matthew Podwysocki (@mattpodwysocki), Microsoft ‘Open Sourcerer’, demystifies the Rx realm and opens our minds to new ideas.

  • Dan, hopefully we will get better equipment by early next year. In the meantime I am trying a few approaches to equalizing sound in Audacity. The big issues I hear on my iPhone are the transitions from intro and outro to the main content. I don't have a problem with the volume myself but I have heard this from others as well. Once the transitional volume is leveled it should be easier to update overall volume. Thanks for listening.

  • First of all, great show guys. I'm a new listener and loving the content. However is there anything you are able to do about increasing the volume level? I listen on my iPhone with earphones on full volume and am still barely able to hear. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
