RxJs is a truly powerful library

RxJs is the key to handling async logic in Angular applications. It unlocks robust, streamlined features that are far superior to alternative, superseded callbacks and promises.

RxJs use cases

  • Superior user experience for the end users
  • Enables implementation of complex async flows
  • Prevents requests race condition (with a single operator)
  • Code-light, more concise declarative functional approach
  • Less verbose, more standardised results and less code to maintain

Common RxJs issues & mistakes

RxJs introduces new, reactive paradigms when implementing Angular frontend applications. Proper use by enterprise teams results in better robustness, stability and development velocity.

However, when used wrongly, RxJs causes nothing but problematic implementations. These lead to over-engineered, complicated codebases, late delivery, bugs and a distinct inability to maintain or evolve projects.

Nested subscriptions

Nested subscriptions

The #1 pitfall for newcomers to reactive programming, resulting in codebases that are a nightmare to maintain. With our workshop, you’ll learn how to never use nested subscriptions again.

Recreating streams during runtime

Recreating streams during runtime

Another common pitfall that requires extensive adjustment for developers used to imperative-style programming. This does nothing but create confusing, impossible-to-maintain codebases, hard to debug bugs and delays in delivery.

Incorrect stream sharing

Incorrect stream sharing

The lack of (or incorrect) implementation of stream sharing leads to creating endless unnecessary backend requests, which flood servers and degrade performance for all users.

Insufficient stream cleanup

Insufficient stream cleanup

Cleaning up unused streams is of paramount importance. Otherwise, the resultant memory leaks will grind application performance to a halt and leave users frustrated and lost.

Incorrect error handling

Incorrect error handling

Handling errors wrongly results in inconsistent behaviours and broken flows. It is all-too-easy to miss incorrect error handling during testing phases but just as easy to prevent with the correct know-how. And doing so will save huge amounts of time down the line…

Incorrect operator usage

Incorrect operator usage

The old saying about the right tool for the job applies equally with regard to RxJs operators. Engaging the wrong operator inevitably leads to suboptimal outcomes, buggy behaviours and at worst, an inconsistent state in backend!

The list of issues goes on…

We’d be here all day if we listed every issue that arises from incorrect RxJs stream implementation...

Instead of boring you to death, book a spot on our Getting Reactive with RxJs Workshop and equip your team with all the skills needed to become an RxJs powerhouse within your organization!

Empower your team to implement RxJs
based logic correctly and efficiently!

It’s never too late to acquire strong RxJs abilities instead of fixing what was broken, it’s best to prevent it from happening in the first place. The Getting Reactive with RxJs Workshop is the actionable, affordable and generally awesome way to do just that.

RxJs presentation

Correct approaches & techniques

Help your teammates implement RxJs-based logic the right way. Prevent every possible shortcoming by learning to recognise when they happen and how to reverse or avoid them altogether.

RxJs reactive programming

Common patterns

Familiarise your team with the most common RxJs patterns for solving requirements when implementing Angular enterprise applications from retrieving and using URL state to employing services as store pattern.

RxJs best practices

Best Practices

Some approaches are always better than the available alternatives. Make your team acquainted with all the best practices in an easy to remember mantra like format to (be able to fall back to) accompany them during the day to day work.

So, what do our participants think?

Workshop

I was able to benefit already the next day by being able to resolve a bunch of issues with side effects in my project!

The Getting Reactive with RxJs Workshop is very well-thought-out and structured two-day experience! The course brought a lot of value to all participants including the total RxJs newbies in our team.
The content covers all the RxJs basics like Observables, Observers or operators all the way to practical approaches and best practices for subscription management and error handling. With plenty of real world examples, exercises and live codings it was a pure joy to learn and explore the topic.

Tomas did a great job presenting this rather complicated topic. The best part was the great usage of StackBlitz examples and live coding to further demonstrate discussed concepts, it helped a lot!

The instructors really knew topics they presented and what a training means - that’s more than sharing information. One person already said that he is so excited to do some improvement into his code because now he really sees how it should be done.

Pricing & options

Book a 2-day workshop for your team and level up your RxJs skills

  • Personalized feedback

    From our experience, up to 20 participants per workshop provides an optimal student/trainer ratio. This enables us to provide sufficient attention to all participants to address every individual question and support them during the hands-on exercises.
  • In person workshops

    We strongly recommend in-person workshops, which provide unparalleled interaction and maximise the value of your time with us. In-person workshops generate deeper questions, clearer answers and the best setting for sharing extra feedback and know-how.
  • Special options

    We also provide the opportunity to focus on only half the workshop content (e.g. basics for total beginners/advanced sections only for experienced participants).

  • Tailored for the audience

    We will always focus on the topics that bring the most value to the largest number of participants. To do this, we tailor each workshop to suit the unique needs of your team and guide you through the elements of RxJs most applicable to your projects.

    More advanced groups may breeze through the official content, then focus on specific use cases in a live coding session. Other groups may use the workshop to build a strong RxJs foundation then continue advancing their skills at their own pace.
