September Event – Tuesday 30th


Dear All,

Just a quick reminder about next week’s event and to let you know that we will be in the Portlight Bar which is up the stairs right of reception and along the hallway in the opposite direction to our usual meeting room “Riviera Room”. Reception will help you out if you are not sure.

Ben was very excited with the “Reactive Programming” demo he saw a TechEd, so he has decided to present this instead of the SharePoint demo as previously stated. (I have had a sneak peek at this demo and it looks very cool)

It has been great to see numbers at these events growing and this should be a very interesting and relevant topic, so I hope to see you all there.

As always RSVP’s are not required but an email is appreciated if you plan to attend so that I have an idea of numbers.
Also please feel free to circulate this email to people who might be interested in attending. If you would like to be added or remove from this email list pop me an email.

Date: Tuesday 30th September
Cost: FREE
Venue: Wrest Point – Portlight Bar
Time: 6pm Food and networking; 6:30 Talks begin
Presenter: Ben Pearce (SharePoint Administrator – TSG)
Topic: Reactive Programming – A.K.A “Databinding on Steroids”

Reactive Programming – A.K.A “Databinding on Steroids”
Reactive programming is a programming paradigm oriented around data flows and the propagation of change. This means that it should be possible to express static or dynamic data flows with ease in the programming languages used, and that the underlying execution model will automatically propagate changes through the data flow.

For example, in an imperative programming setting, a = b + c would mean that a is being assigned the result of b + c in the instant the expression is evaluated. In reactive programming it could instead mean that we set up a dynamic data-flow from b and c to a. whenever the value of c or b is changed, then a is automatically updated.

The goal of this presentation is to show how reactive programming can be implemented within .Net environment,  The presentation will be mainly focused on demonstrations showing how a relatively common search/retrieve/edit Win-Forms application can be created with surprisingly little code in the presentation layer, making use of Bindable View Models to promote code reuse and separation from the User Interface.
