The website for ReactiveX states that ReactiveX is a combination of the best ideas from the Observer pattern, the Iterator pattern, and functional programming.
  1. Does this mean the Observer and Iterator patterns in the GoF book?
  2. Does "functional programming" mean a specific functional programming language or functional programming principles in general?
I ask these questions because I want to study the raw sources of motivation for ReactiveX.
Raw source of motivation: better UI code :wink:
If you find for "silverlight Erik Meijer Rx" you will find various articles around 2009

Thanks for replying but I meant "raw sources of motivation" in a different sense. For example, a raw source of motivation for the Iterator class in Java is the iterator design pattern found in the GoF book.
