A very warm welcome to this forum Adam! I am sure your book has come at a very opportune time.

I had a couple of questions regarding reactive programming as given below:

  • Though I have read many articles and posts regarding reactive programming, I sometimes see a mention of functional programming thrown around carelessly which tends to confuse. My question is around, how both these paradigms affect each other and how far do you see them go together?
  • As I understand reactive programming, I believe, to realize its full potential, reactive support is required end to end in any stack otherwise you don't get the full benefits of being reactive. Given that many systems are gradually warming up to this idea and have started releasing support for reactive, I wanted to know if there is an easy way to make an informed decision of choice based on available options that provide reactive support.

    With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
