Webinar Recording: A Playful Introduction to Rx by Erik Meijer

In case you’ve missed the awesome webinar A Playful Introduction to Rx by Erik Meijer last week, you can watch the recording published on IntelliJ IDEA 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.
