Websocket + RXJS Live Coding recap

Code: https://github.com/hankyates/websocket-stream/tree/2018-07-31-post-stream

I am trying a new thing. I am going to try and live stream coding sessions of when I am learning new things. My hope is that maybe people will engage or find these musings useful. I know that there are many programmers that I wish I could just see how they work or approach things.

I set out with a pretty simple and achievable goal. Just to get an Observable stream from a websocket. Most of the evening was spent getting stumped by finding a decent API and figuring out where things were in the rxjs namespace. At the end I was able to setup two different streams that filtered based on different values which was my goal.

I am really excited about the next phase which will be acting on these values in some sort of meaningful way.
