Rx v2.0 release candidate is available

Last night at the LDNUG meetup, Bart De Smet gave his presentation on Rx. At the end of the presentation he announced that Rx v2.0 was now officially a release candidate. He then went to go on and release to Nuget in front of the team. You could feel the nerdy excitement in the room.

The release notes can be found on the Rx team blog. The post is huge (~48 printed pages).

Now I have a race to update the Introduction to Rx book to have all the v2 features before they actually release it.

Introduction to Rx online book is available

I am super excited to announce that the book I have been working on is now live at

I have been working hard over the last 6 months taking the content from the blogs and giving it a good coat of paint to make it a little more professional than my "thought bombs" that I put up on the blog. This is the main reason why this blog has been quiet for the first half of the year. The content from the blog series is 9 chapters/posts, the book however is 17 chapters and has some extra pre/post content too. I cover more (almost all) Rx operators, show you how to think in a functional way to really get Rx working for you, provide more examples and give guidance of best practices.

I still have some small updates from my editor to make, and then I will submit it to Amazon. This means that you should be able to get the offline version straight to your kindle. The book will be free, the website is too, obviously. The content in both is exactly the same so don't feel like there may be little hidden gems that are in one and not the other.

I have already been getting good feedback from the small group that have seen it pre-release, so I hope you find value it too.
