by Brice Wilson

RxJS enables you to build fast, responsive client and server web applications. This course will teach you all of the foundational building blocks of the library including Observables, Observers, Operators, Subjects, Schedulers, and much more.

What you'll learn

RxJS and reactive programming techniques are a fundamental part of the most popular JavaScript frameworks available today. In RxJS: Getting Started, you will learn how to use all of the major pieces of the library so that you can quickly apply reactive programming techniques in your client and server web applications. First, you will learn how to create and use Observables to process asynchronous code and events. Next, you will learn how to use the built-in operators, and those you create yourself, to manipulate and shape your data so that it perfectly meets your needs. Finally, you will learn how to multicast Observables with Subjects and precisely control how your Observables are executed with Schedulers. When you're finished with this course, you will have a foundational understanding of RxJS that will help you build fast, responsive apps whether you're using RxJS alone or as part of a larger JavaScript application framework.
