For reference, here’s a list of links to my two series of posts on RxSwift and Combine. There’s nothing new today, but it occurred to me that I didn’t have a good summary page that others can link to.
In late 2016, I walked through how to write an extremely basic app using RxSwift. We start by writing the app traditionally/procedurally, and then migrate it to being written using RxSwift.

Combine vs. RxSwift
In June of this year, I did a deeper dive on how functional reactive programming came to be, why one would want to use it, and how RxSwift and Combine take slightly different approaches to solving the same problems.
