Learn socket programming in C# .Net
Get proficient in computer network socket programming using TCP/IP streaming sockets and become a better professional programmer.
Each video of this course covers an important concept of client server socket programming & network communication. Ready to use C# code examples are supplied in Visual Studio solution form for you to download, and a demo after every couple of lectures will show you practical implementation of the concepts described earlier.
By the end of this course, you will be able to create C# (Sharp) .Net software capable of sending and receiving data over TCP/IP sockets on peer to peer basis with async and await keywords. You will learn not only socket programming, but async/await keywords as well. The course will make you a better programmer.
Why take this course?
You should take this course if you're a professional(or student) with some coding experience in the past but lack understanding of how computer networks work on a software level(either in C#, Java, or C++).
You will learn techniques which are useful in real life scenarios commonly faced by programmers.
Many students of distributed application programming university courses have taken this course in the past and posted positive comments in reviews. They were able to easily complete their assignments on their own after watching this course.
Section 1 is available for free, it contains very useful information anybody can benefit from, whether they're familiar with C#.Net or not.
Minimum upfront theory
A lot of courses tend to pile up theory ahead of the real code, this course is going take a minimum theory first approach.
You will learn essentials of network programming and start writing C# code in under 15 minutes.
Use of Windows Forms and class library
This course will use a class library project in C# along with Win Forms, an approach different from many other courses who use command line projects. My teaching methodology makes the course lot less boring and non-classroom like, practically useful and really suitable for professionals.
Short, sweet, to the point
Entire course is designed with the busy professionals in mind and the videos were created to make your online learning experience fruitful and easy. It is a project based training.
Asynchronous programming with async/await keywords, modern real world solution
async/await keywords were introduced in C# 5.0. In traditional socket programming scenarios, (multi) threading is use to create a responsive server or client. I have bypassed that route and shown you how to use asynchronous sockets directly. I first explain you what are async/await keywords and then I show how to use these for non-blocking network I/O. This part of the puzzle in the key to high traffic enterprise applications.
Each section contains a quiz on the end which is very helpful to ensure that you review and retain important bits of information imparted in relevant course section.
Join an active community
Become a part of the programmers community who have already taken this course. Your questions will be answered by the fellow students and the course instructor as well. Really a wonderful place to start learning!
Learn something new
Sockets are considered an advanced topic, a danger zone in programming parlance. Knowing it means you take your trade seriously.
Object Oriented Programming
This course teaches you how to create a distributed application using the principles of OOP. You are going to bridge the gap between the back-end C#.Net class library and the fron-tend WinForms application using an implementation of Publisher/Subscriber model based on EventHandler classes. This course also shows you what are event handlers and how to create your own event.
You will also learn how to resolve a hostname to IP Address using System.Net.DNS class. You'll also implement various sanity checks using tryparse and try/catch.
You don't need to learn C to work on this course.
