Webinar Recording: A Playful Introduction to Rx by Erik Meijer

In case you missed our awesome webinar on July 18th, A Playful Introduction to Rx with Erik Meijer, you can now watch the recording on JetBrainsTV YouTube Channel.

Learning Rx does not have to be boring or painful, working your way through theoretical sermons about esoteric concepts like category theory and duality. Life is too short for that kind of abstract nonsense. So what is a better way to spend a hot summer day with an ice-cold drink, or a cold winter night with a piping hot drink, than to learn Rx by writing an awesome platform game?

Enjoy the video and feel free to share it with the friends of yours:

Erik’s slides are available at Slideshare.

About the Presenter:

Live Webinar: A Playful Introduction to Rx, July 18th

Learning Rx does not have to be boring or painful, working your way through theoretical sermons about esoteric concepts like category theory and duality. Life is too short for that kind of abstract nonsense.

Join us Friday, July 18th, 14:00 – 15:00 GMT (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT), for our free webinar featuring Erik Meijer, A Playful Introduction to Rx.

So what is a better way to spend a hot summer day with an ice-cold drink, or a cold winter night with a piping hot drink, than to learn Rx by writing an awesome platform game? In this talk, I will walk you through many of the features of Rx by way of scripting a friendly bug to run across a lush grassy meadow and jump for the stars. In just a few tens of lines of code, we will leverage operators like ‘map’, ‘flatMap’, ‘filter’, ‘scan’, and many more to react to the keyboard, animate jumps, and perform collision detection. We will even use a test scheduler to make the game run at a speed we determine so we can easily debug and test our game.

We will use RxScala and IntelliJ IDEA to develop the game, but since Rx is language- and platform-agnostic, we’ll show snippets of the same game implemented using RxJs and Rx .NET as well. Of course, all the source code will be available for your entertainment on GitHub.

Once you have mastered elementary game development using Rx, you are more than ready to go on and build reactive, event-driven, scalable, and resilient enterprise systems for your pointy-haired boss. But until then, devs just wanna have fun.

Space is limited, so please register now. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.

JetBrains Expands into South America

JetBrains has been serving the global community for many years. We have customers from all over the world; we support user groups, universities and open source projects in many different locations. However, we don’t always get to interact with many of these communities as much as we’d like. One very large community that definitely deserves more of our attention is the one of South America.

We support many communities in a variety of South American countries and we’d like to have more of a physical presence on the ground. For that reason we’re happy to announce that Anderson Casimiro, a well-known PHP Community leader from São Paulo, Brazil, has joined JetBrains Americas.

Anderson Casimiro“I was introduced to Anderson by two of my colleagues as a great community guy that was really out-going and helpful. From chatting to him and getting to know him more, I knew that he was the right fit for JetBrains. Anderson knows his stuff and will be helping us increase our presence in Brazil and other South American countries, covering various technologies.” said Hadi Hariri, Evangelism Team Lead.

Among Anderson’s daily activities will be that of creating content in Portuguese and Spanish that cover not only our products but also topics related to software development. For that we’ve created a dedicated blog located at http://blog.jetbrains.com/sa.

We look forward to increasing our interaction with the South American community as well as our presence at conferences and community gatherings. This effort is already underway and we hope to meet you soon!

Can you imagine what it would be like to focus on adding valuable features without being burdened with how they’re released to the world?

Come experiment with us as we explore the landscape of opportunities beyond Continuous Integration. See how build chains and dependencies provide a robust framework to orchestrate the benefits automation can bring, to the software you create.

Webinar Recording: Embracing AppCode 3.0

The recording of our June 12th webinar, Embracing AppCode 3.0, is now available on JetBrainsTV YouTube channel.

In this webinar, Rafał Legiędź shows some “standard” magic like code assistance, code generation and refactoring features, goes through debugging and CocoaPods support, and even gives a small demo of Swift coding in AppCode.

Below are some questions from our webinar answered by Rafał and Anastasia.

Q: Does AppCode have Interface Builder? Does it support storyboard format?
A: Yes, since version 3.0 AppCode includes an integrated UI Designer that provides all the essential UI editor features and works with the full component palette supported by iOS SDK. For developing your application’s UI, you can use either .xib or .storyboard formats.

Q: How to synchronize code style convention (autoformat) between Xcode and AppCode team members?
A: Right now there’s no automatic option to do that. AppCode has the possibility to import colour schemes from Xcode and includes Xcode keymap, fully re-worked in AppCode 3.0 to better match the native one, and to have fewer conflicts with Xcode itself. As for the other, there is an issue in our tracker. Feel free to vote to increase the priority.

Q: What are the possible cases for using Cmd+N shortcut? Where code generation can be used in AppCode?
A: There are a vast number of code generation options in AppCode.

  • You can use it in the main code:
    • for Objective-C (initWith, init/encodeWithCoder, copyWithZone, Override/Implement Methods, @synthesize, etc.)
    • or C++ (constructor, destructor, getter, setter, etc.).
  • In unit tests (for more details read our post):
    • for setUp/tearDown methods or test methods in OCUnit, XCTest or Google Test;
    • it, context, beforeEach, afterEach and specify blocks for Kiwi.
  • Create new File / Class / Protocol / Category / File from Xcode template, when pressed in Project View.
  • Create new Target, when executed in Project Settings.

About the Presenter:

Thanks to all the attendees for the nice features suggestions! If you still have some, please, put them on our tracker.

Rafał LegiędźRafał Legiędź works as a principal software developer for ABB Poland. He believes that being pragmatic in our field is very helpful and proves that by switching technologies he uses whenever there is a need or an opportunity to learn new concepts. Started with .NET back-end solutions, he quickly became a web guy using technologies of few sorts and now he develops enterprise iOS and javascript apps
