Part 1. Core reactive programming

In this part

  • This book begins with getting you comfortable using your new tools—RxJava and a couple of libraries to support it.
  • The first chapter starts with a concrete example that will give you quick wins with the reactive style of programming.
  • Chapter 2 explores the typical case of handling network requests with RxJava and Retrofit. You’ll start to see the different mental models of the way data is processed, as in chapter 3 you’ll explore a credit card example with data processing chains. In chapter 4, you’ll construct a fully functioning Flickr client against an existing public API.
  • In the last chapter of the first part, chapter 5, you’ll work with an Android file browser. The code from this chapter will serve as the starting point for the second part of this book.

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”
