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?
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.
