In a world where there is a smartphone in every pocket, designing and building applications that can run smoothly and deliver the User Experience that users deserve, it’s the only way to go. Reactive Programming with RxJava will help you to beat Android Platform limitations to create astonishing Android Apps.
This talk will be a practical journey from basic Reactive Programming and Observer Pattern concepts to the main feature of RxJava, with code examples and a real-world app.
You will learn how to create an Observable “from scratch”, from a list or from a function you already have in your code base. You will learn how to filter an Observable sequence to create a new sequence containing only the values you want; you will learn how to apply a function to an Observable, how to concatenate or merge Observables. I’ll show how to enjoy RxAndroid Schedulers to overcome the threading and concurrency hell in Android.
I will close the talk with a practical example about RxJava + Retrofit, to easily communicate with a REST API.
I know you read this abstract with Don LaFontaine’s voice.
