The software industry is amidst of a paradigm shift - functional reactive programming. It is the new black. When our co-founders insisted on speed and stability we began evaluating several factors that could speed up development and delivery for our Android and iOS applications.

We noticed that we were mixing functional reactive programming model with battle-tested but old architectures like MVP, MVVM, etc., A new programming paradigm requires a new application architecture to go with. We began looking out for other platforms and drew a lot of inspiration from web development community and came up with a pragmatic reactive architecture based on unidirectional data-flow.

In this talk, we discuss the architecture in detail and share recipes on a set of patterns that can be used to build reactive applications for both Android and iOS. We walk through several examples explaining how you can use RxJava to architect scalable apps using this reactive architecture.


Why FRP?
How MVI enables developers build better apps
Representing and managing UI states
Plug-n-Play components
Fractal nature of MVI architecture


You must be familiar with at least one architectural pattern.
A basic understanding of RxJava is desired.

    As manifestos go, it’s not a pragmatic guide for developers. When you endeavor to fabricate receptive frameworks originating from the universe of Java web and venture advancement, you’ll unearth some basic contrasts and might wish someone had told you earlier.

    Responsive writing computer programs is the act of programming with offbeat information streams or occasion streams. An occasion stream can be in any way similar to console inputs, catch taps, signals, GPS area updates, accelerometer, and iBeacon. You can tune in to a stream and respond to it as needs be.
