Shai will be speaking at MobOS about “Getting Started with Combine”.

In the last WWDC, Apple has finally released it’s very own framework for declarative processing of values over time, making the skill of Reactive Programming a must for your toolset. But what does it actually mean, and why is it at all helpful for you as a developer? What are the tools and constructs Apple provides for us as developers?

In this talk, you’ll learn:
* What _is_ Reactive Programming?
* How Combine differs from other Reactive Declarative frameworks
* Basic building blocks: Publisher, Subscriber, Subscription, Subjects and more
* The anatomy and lifecycle of a Combine event
* Combine vocabulary: Operators – the ‘words’ that makeup your Combine chain
* Combine & Foundation: Apple-provided APIs to ease your day-to-day development with Combine and existing Swift APIs
* Combine’s role in SwiftUI
* What is Backpressure?
* And much more …

Make sure you secure a seat at MobOS coming up next in February!
