Rx Framework: Asynchronous Programming Made Easy

A few weeks ago, to little fanfare Erik Meijer gave a presentation on the Rx Framework at the Lang.NET symposium.  You probably missed it.  Don't worry though.  It's no big deal.  It's only the culmination of one the most significant discoveries about the fundamental nature of asynchronous programming.  Oh yeah, and it's coming soon to the .NET Framework.

The Rx Framework uses Linq to build asynchronous code declaratively.  One of the perks of working at Microsoft is that I've been using it for months now.  Now that it has finally been talked about publicly I fully intend to start blogging about it but I'm waiting for the folks responsible, notably Wes Dyer, to take the plunge .  In the meantime here's a link to the presentation.  Watch it here while it's still on-line.

Don't tease me with the suggestion that Wes Dyer is going to resume blogging.

Wes has assured me personally that he intends to resume soon. I too have been patiently awaiting his return to the blogosphere :-).

Wonderful, I've really missed Wes's highly technical and FP posts.

Thanks for the heads up on Rx! Watching the video now.
