Why do we think reactive type of programming might be a good thing with state machines? Well it all boils down to a machine execution model which is run-to-completion when either timer or event is causing something to happen in a future. If state machine is using synchronous event handling then user is blocked to wait for event to get processed. State machine has always supported asynchronous event handling, which is great but creates a burden for user to listen what and when maching is executing. With reactive style API’s we think that real life interaction with state machines will become much easier. Don’t worry, old API’s will not go away.
