RxJS Observables / GraphQL Intro
Hello JS folk! This month we've invited Jeremy Fairbank of Test Double (http://testdouble.com...) to introduce us to RxJS (https://github.com/Re...) Observables. If you are using Angular (https://angular.io/...), then you are using RxJS and observables every time you make an Ajax request. If you use ngrx with Angular, then RxJS plays an even bigger role. Having a deep understanding of RxJS will help you become fluent in Angular. Moreover, RxJS is becoming widespread and is being used standalone in other contexts as well as with other frontend frameworks such as React and Vue.
Lightning Talk: GraphQL
To open our evening, Keyur Patel will give us a short introduction to GraphQL.
RxJS (https://github.com/Re...) is a library for expressing asynchronous code with Observables. Observables provide a powerful API for handling DOM events, WebSockets, and REST APIs in a unified, composable manner with less code. In this presentation, we will learn how Observables work, the benefits of Observables over Promises, many of the Observable operators, hot versus cold observables, and more. You will leave this talk with a better understanding of RxJS and how to write cleaner, more elegant asynchronous code with Observables.
