Publishing Reference Counts for Connected Observables

Posted on Friday, November 15, 2019

While looking into GH-2170 I wound up digging through RefCount on the dotnet reactive repository. So, when I get into the guts of code that is over my head, I talk to the guru's. I got schooled by a Functional Reactive Programming sorceress about two specific Reactive Operators Publish() and RefCount(). I am come down from the mountain top with knowledge for the people!


Scientific, Iterative, Test Driven oh my!

I know I may be old fashioned, but I wanted to be a Computer Scientist. As a kid the science of computing excited me! Entering college, the Computer Science track seemed natural. I would learn the joys of Data Structures and Algorithms analysis, and the woes that is the Theory of Computation. Your job as a scientist is to disprove theory. Your enemy is theory and the tool you use to vanquish said enemy is, application. So when I write software, I do not abandon the corner stone of our claim to existence, the Scientific Method.
