Reactive Extensions for .NET LogoMy one-hundred-and-ninety-eighth podcast is up. I sit down with Erik Meijer from the Cloud Programmability Team to hear about the Reactive Extensions for .NET (Rx). Rx is a library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs using observable collections. Sound boring? Not even a little. Rx is a prescription for awesome.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate aboutTelerik is their commitment tocompleteness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

That's a great introduction to the Rx framework - the clearest I've heard so far. Thanks Scott and Erik.

Scott - I'm intrigued by your pronunciation of Lego as "lay-go". Here in England we pronounce it "le-go" - any Danish people around with a definitive answer?
