Are you subscribing to Observables just because you learnt you have to? Did you hear about async-await without knowing what it’s really about? Can’t you grasp the difference between switchMap, mergeMap, concatMap and exhaustMap? What is the use of having a zillion operators in RxJS anyway? And how do Promises and RxJS relate?
In modern JavaScript you can handle asynchronicity in a number of ways. You can use JavaScript’s built in async-await syntax. Or you can use Observables, which you are likely to do if you’re an Angular programmer. Probably you are already using either one of them, but do you know the real powers and pitfalls? In this talk, we’ll take a deep dive into Promises and Observables, so if you go back to your office, you can explain your colleagues what they are actually doing.
