Philipp Haller explains how to make Rx programming more natural and intuitive by generalizing Scala's Async which, so far, has been used to program with non-blocking futures in a familiar direct style
Philipp Haller is a Consultant at Typesafe and a member of the Scala team. He created Scala's first actors library, and is one of the lead designers of the futures library of Scala 2.10. He worked on parallel domain-specific languages embedded in Scala at Stanford's Pervasive Parallelism Lab and co-authored the book “Actors in Scala”.
SPLASH is home to OOPSLA, Onward! and DLS. OOPSLA is the forum for many important software developments of the last few decades: CRC cards, CLOS, design patterns, Agile, SOA, Wikis, UML, TDD, refactoring, Java, and Aspects. Onward! is about programming and software: processes, methods, languages, communities, and applications. DLS addresses dynamic languages: their implementation and application.
