    👉 Reaqtor: Reliable Rx at Scale for High-performance Event Processing
    The Reactive Extensions for .NET (Rx) is one of the most influential technologies to have emerged from the .NET ecosystem.

The team that created Rx did not rest on their laurels: they used Rx as the basis for developing a distributed, reliable, and extremely scalable event processing service.
