I'm normally a vanilla programmer. I like classic programming paradigms, and people who know me will tell you that I'm not a fan of third partly libraries. But, I'm a contractor, and that means I need to be able to do things that I wouldn't normally do
Not only is FRP (RxSwift for the purposes of this talk) a large single dependency to add to a project, it also encourages a different programming style. I've spoken to people about FRP and I've been told that they see it as very abstract and can't find simple examples of these differences (beyond the classic example of validating a username and password). This talk will try to correct that by providing a side by side comparison and people can make their own minds up about whether it is something that they want to incorporate into their own apps.
