A real life stream in action.

As observables are gaining more and more popularity in JavaScript we are looking to accomplish our everyday tasks using them and evaluating whether they are really worth all the hype. One task you might find yourself doing is polling the backend to know whether a longer running task has completed.

We will walk through an example of such a scenario and implement a solution using RxJS. On our way we will learn some basic operators for RxJS, and a few techniques as well as how to avoid a pitfall or two. At the end I will present a real-world example to show you how to implement what we learned in a specific scenario.
