Getting Started with Reactive Programming Using RxJS

by Scott Allen

This course is designed to get you started using the reactive programming library for JavaScript, RxJS. You'll see the powerful, flexible approach RxJS provides for asynchronous programming by using RxJS to manage events, HTTP calls, and more.

What you'll learn

Reactive programming is more than an API. Reactive programming is a mindset. In this course, Getting Started with Reactive Programming Using RxJS, you'll see how to set up and install RxJS and work with your first Observable and Observer. You'll use RxJS to manage asynchronous data delivered from DOM events, network requests, and JavaScript promises. Finally, you'll learn how to handle errors and exceptions in asynchronous code, and learn about the RxJS operators you can use as composable building blocks in a data processing pipeline. By the end of the course, you'll have the fundamental knowledge you need to use RxJS in your own applications, and use other frameworks that rely on RxJS.
