Learn how to implement Reactive Programming paradigms with Kotlin, and apply them to web programming with Spring Framework 5.0 and in Android Application Development. About This Book Learn how to solve blocking user experience with Reactive Programming and get deep insights into RxKotlin Integrate Reactive Kotlin with Spring and build fantastic Android Apps with RxKotlin and RxAndroid Build reactive architectures that reduce complexity throughout the development process and make your apps(web and Android) scalable Who This Book Is For This book is for Kotlin developers who would like to build fault-tolerant, scalable, and distributed systems. A basic knowledge of Kotlin is required, but no prior knowledge of reactive programming. What You Will Learn Learn about reactive programming paradigms and how reactive programming can improve your existing projects Gain in-depth knowledge in RxKotlin 2.0 and the ReactiveX Framework Use RxKotlin with Android Create your own custom operators in RxKotlin Use Spring Framework 5.0 with Kotlin Use the reactor-kotlin extension Build Rest APIs with Spring,Hibernate, and RxKotlin Use testSubscriber to test RxKotlin applications Use backpressure management and Flowables In Detail In today's app-driven era, when programs are asynchronous, and responsiveness is so vital, reactive programming can help you write code that's more reliable, easier to scale, and better-performing. Reactive programming is revolutionary. With this practical book, Kotlin developers will first learn how to view problems in the reactive way, and then build programs that leverage the best features of this exciting new programming paradigm. You will begin with the general concepts of Reactive programming and then gradually move on to working with asynchronous data streams. You will dive into advanced techniques such as manipulating time in data-flow, customizing operators and provider and how to Use the concurrency model to control asynchronicity of code and process event handlers effectively. You will then be introduced to functional reactive programming and will learn to apply FRP in practical use cases in Kotlin. This book will also take you one step forward by introducing you to spring 5 and spring boot 2 using Kotlin. By the end of the book, you will be able to build real-world applications with reactive user interfaces as well as you'll learn to implement reactive programming paradigms in Android. Style and Approach Loaded with numerous code examples and real-life projects, this book helps you delve into Reactive Programming with Kotlin, and apply it to real-world Spring-web and Android projects, thus making all your apps reactive.

Now that she’s no longer cursed and the evil Luciana Alvarez has been taken care of, she thinks life will finally settle down. Boy, she has never been so wrong. In the middle of the night, Donovan gets a call telling him that his pack has gone to pieces. The news that his second in command has been found brutally murdered has Donovan packing his bags for Ireland, but the last thing Meredith wants to do is go with him. Cosette just warned her that the Irish pack isn't so happy about Donovan's choice in mates. But Meredith’s never let a few angry wolves stop her, and she’s not about to start now. She’s faced down much worse the past few months. But when she gets there, she finds that it’s not just an angry pack that stands in the way between her and her Full Moon Ceremony with Donovan. Meredith is thrust into a deadly game of pack politics, one a fey beast has happily joined. When the magic and dust settle, she knows she’ll either have everything that she wants or lose it all.

“If Dirty Harry and Anita Blake had a love child, he would be Deacon Chalk” (Jenna Maclaine, author of Bound by Sin). He has yet to meet a monster that could give him a scare. With ice in his veins, silver hollow-points in his chambers, and an innate ability to rise from the dead, what’s to fear? The answer may be something he doesn’t want to face . . . Deacon Chalk normally has no trouble telling innocent victims from real monsters. So protecting an abused pregnant were-dog is a no-brainer . . . until a vicious lycanthrope leader and his brotherhood target Deacon, other shape-shifters, and any humans in their way. Suddenly, he is outnumbered, outgunned, and unsure of whom—or what—to trust. The only edge he has left is a weapon hungry for his soul and his most savage impulses. And using it will exact a price even this hell-raising hunter fears to pay. . . . From the author of Blood and Bullets, this is an action-packed, gritty urban fantasy starring a hero who “kicks monster ass” (Faith Hunter, author of the Jane Yellowrock series).
