Expert to Expert: Brian Beckman and Erik Meijer — Inside the .NET Reactive Framework (Rx)
Erik Meijer and team (developer Wes Dyer, in particular) have created a profound and beautiful .NET library that will take managed event based programming to new levels. Of course, many of you wish that you could write LINQ expressions over events. Well, now you can thanks to Erik's and Wes Dyer's latest creation, Rx — .NET Reactive Framework. Erik, being a fundamentalist functional theoritician, can't create new programming abstractions without employing some form of monadic magic.
