In the previous chapter, we started discussing the use of RxJS in our programs. To start using it, we compared Observables in Reactive Extensions with EventStreams and Properties in bacon.js. Then we looked at some of the most common sources of data we can use to create Observables, as follows:
- Promises and callbacks
- DOM events
- Any arbitrary source
