Reactive programming has become a hot topic these days as code is becoming more and more event driven. So what exactly is reactive programming?

Jafar Husain has been working as a software developer for 16 years. He's developed software for companies like GE, Microsoft, and Netflix. He specializes in building web servers and clients using functional reactive programming, and was the first user of the Reactive Extensions Framework.
