In this talk, I present basics of reactive programming using reactive extensions in Scala. The objective is to understand Futures and Observables which will help us to deal with asynchronous events in a functional way. We will go through many examples illustrating why and how to use these constructs.

    Thanks for your proposal Amit. IMHO, instead of a talk, a step-by-step demo, progressively explaining the concepts behind reactive would be more beneficial for the participants. If you agree, request you to please update your proposal accordingly.

      Thanks for the feedback, Naresh. This was my plan anyway - maybe the description was not clear. I've updated it now. Things will mostly be code with a few slides to explain the concepts.
