about this item

In today's world, user interfaces have to be highly dynamic, asynchronous, and reliable. To meet these demands, the programming world is undergoing a radical shift towards something called Functional Reactive Programming (FRP), or just Reactive Programming. FRP offers programmers a new way to construct their applications so that they respond directly to change. And developers spend less time tracing obscure problems and more time focusing on what their code should be doing.

RxJava for Android Developers teaches programmers a new way of thinking about programs and data as well as how to build robust and extensible user interfaces. This well-illustrated book presents lots of concrete, real-world problems and then shows how FRP helps to solve them. It begins by looking at examples that get readers into the mindset of data flows and goes on to introduce the concept of a View Model. Readers also learn how FRP enables them to better manage change and introduce new features. The final part of this book focuses on higher-level application design concerns and strategies as you look at architectural approaches and frameworks that work well with FRP thinking.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
