As I said via Twitter, owning your mistakes and making them public takes high-levels of both courage and maturity. Mad props to you for doing that and thank you for elaborating on your Tweet in this write-up 👍🏾 .

The best way to follow through on the first sentence of "The Road Forward" is to write an open-source book. Instead of targeting mid-level and senior developers, assume your readers are juniors that know nothing about Observable.

Before reading this article, I heard of Observable, but I had no clue what it was. Since RxJS is so popular, I would pay $30 for a book that teaches it from scratch. I'm imagining YDKJS, but for RxJS and Observable. That said, if you want to spread the word to as many people as possible, an open-source book is a better option.

Thanks again for the write-up. I wish you and the RxJS team the best going forward.

Not sure about the rules of self-promotion here, but I wrote a book on learning Observables/RxJS with practical demos: pragprog.com/titles/rkrxjs/ Happy to answer any questions you might have (though Ben's the true expert)

Thanks, Randall!
