Abstract

What happens when your web app loses connectivity? What happens when it’s on a spotty mobile single? Despite using the latest and greatest frameworks, your push notifications and real-time application features won’t work well if your web socket disconnects or your HTTP requests won’t go through.

Enter reactive programming with RxJS. In this talk, we’re going to talk about what RxJS is, and how it can be used to make your application more robust and resilient to network outages. We’re going to talk about the basics of RxJS observables and show how to create a reusable, custom operator that can be used to make sure your web socket and HTTP requests complete their tasks.

This talk will include a panel discussion from various front-end frameworks representatives on the implementation of RxJS.
