reactive extensions for .net Rx

Thanks to Lynn Langit, Microsoft's Bart de Smet will be in town to speak to SGV.NET special user group meeting on Thu June 10th at 6:00 PM. Reactive extensions is a new and exciting topic for most of us and Bart, being the expert in functional programming paradigm, will be an excellent speaker to listen to.

Help us getting the word out to your co-workers, fellow user group members, friends or via your website to maximize the attendance. This announcement will also be a part of MSDN flash.

Details of the meeting are available on our website http://sgvdotnet.org

Looking forward to see you there.


Abstract: Reactive Extensions for .NET (Rx) is a library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs using observable collections.Rx is a superset of the standard LINQ sequence operators that exposes asynchronous and event-based computations as push-based, observable collections via the new .NET 4.0 interfaces IObservable and IObserver. This talk will introduce you to Rx and Bret will teach how to do complex event processing and asynchronous computations using LINQ queries over observable collections using Reactive Extensions.
