Hi there,

Apparently reactive programming is like the next "big thing", I just started an angular training recently and the teacher talked about it and we are going to start using it a bit so all my knowdledge about it is limited to a couple of articles on the web.
Is the book meant for "greenhorns" like me? And do you use any library such as Rx or others to explain the different patterns?

Thanks and cheers

Perhaps the next big thing, but grounded in some older principles. Chapter 3 attempts to put Reactive into some historical context. The actor model goes back to 1973, and there is a bit about what has happened since then.

The book is intended for developers who have some experience in distributed development and want to extend their knowledge into Reactive design. Most of the examples in the book are in Java and Scala, with a few nods to JavaScript along the way. If you are a greenhorn in the sense that you do not know either of those languages or do not have any distributed systems experience, I think you will find the book difficult. The concepts cross languages but sometimes seeing a bit of code is what it takes to reach understanding.

Thanks for the reply, I didnt know about that and sounds very interesting. I am not new to java and work regularly with javascript so I am used to functional programming.

Cheers!
