Reactive Extensions in .NET (Manning)
Reactive Extensions in .NET (Manning)
Tuesday, 16 May 2017

This is a step-by-step guide with examples in C# that shows developers how to build event-driven applications using the Rx library. Tamir Dresher first provides an overview of the design and architecture of Rx-based reactive applications before looking at the rich query capabilities that Rx provides and the Rx concurrency model that allows developers to control asynchronicity of code and processing of event handlers.


Reactive Extensions (Rx) is a .NET library that abstracts away the sources of events and provides tools to effectively manage concerns like concurrency, scalability, error handling, and performance.

The book also discusses consuming event streams, using schedulers to manage time, and working with Rx operators to filter, transform, and group events. Readers new to Rx will be able to learn from the ground up and those using Rx will get a deeper look at how to use Rx in existing Reactive applications.
