Excerpt: RxJava is an incredibly powerful tool for making Android code easier to maintain and less bug prone, but as a new Android Developer, it might not always be clear what exactly RxJava is doing and why doing things that way helps make code better. In this talk we’ll discuss how things were traditionally done in Android, problematic areas with these approaches, and how RxJava can help solve some of these issues. In addition to providing the motivation for RxJava, this talk will also provide the audience with examples of the most common RxJava use cases as well as common pitfalls to avoid when integrating RxJava in a project for the first time. No prior Rx knowledge is assumed.
