Reflex: A New Reactive Programming Language at Facebook

YOW! 2017 Sydney

Its main characteristic is its “spreadsheet semantics”: the runtime recomputes the state of the program incrementally when changes occur. This talk will cover the basics of the language as well as how things work under the hood.
