Look inside

RxJava for Android Developers teaches you how to build fast, fluid, and reactive mobile apps for Android with RxJava.

about the technology

For Android developers, writing multithreaded apps can be as challenging as it is necessary. RxJava simplifies complex threading operations, maintaining proper synchronization as you switch seamlessly from thread to thread. RxJava also brings the benefits of reactive programming to your apps—that means better real-time responsiveness, the holy grail for every Android developer.

about the book

RxJava for Android Developers begins by inviting you to think about programming and data the reactive way. This engaging, hands-on essential reference introduces you to the central pattern of RxJava for Android, then explains the View Model before exploring highly sought-after app features like chat clients and elegant transitions. Finally, you’ll look at high-level design concerns and architectural approaches and frameworks that work well with Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) thinking.

about the reader

Readers should have some experience building Android applications. No experience with RxJava is needed.

about the author

Timo Tuominen has used FRP and RxJava extensively while working with Futurice as an architect of a major Android project for Samsung.

A terrific introduction to a complex topic. The examples are real enough to be useful when writing your own applications without bogging you down in extraneous detail.

Mark Elston, Advantest America

Clear and practical, the book does an amazing job of showing the power of RxJava to build Android apps.

Cody Sand, Sandtoken

Writing code that deals with asynchronous events properly is tricky, but this book and RxJava make it much easier.
