Overview

Practical .NET 2.0 Networking Projects demonstrates some of the key networking technologies that are being made easily accessible through .NET Framework 2.0. It discusses communication between wired machines and between networks and mobile devices. The book teaches you about the technologies by walking you through sample projects in a straightforward and direct way.

The book begins by discussing background theory so you'll get comfortable with the layout of the .NET Framework and Compact Framework from a networking perspective. Then you'll use the APIs within these frameworks to build a variety of cutting-edge networking applications that cover everything from Bluetooth and RFID communication to sockets programming and chat servers. You'll build working examples for each project, which you can also customize and use for your own purposes. The featured projects cover:

  • Basic introduction to network programming in .NET 2.0
  • Sockets programming
  • Serial communication
  • Bluetooth and GPS
  • Infrared networking to mobile devices
  • RFID

    Good overview of a number of serial interfaces techniques

    Mr. Lee¿s book is a good refresher for those who are looking to brush up on their serial interface communications .NET programming skills. When I think of networking, the things that come to mind are sockets, servers and clients or, in other words, communicating between multiple systems through the Ethernet, but this book goes beyond this. I would like to have seen more depth the areas of sockets (Chapter 1) and serial communication (Chapter 2). Instead, we see more of an introduction to these and many more serial-based interfaces, such as RFID, Bluetooth, GPS, infrared and fingerprint recognition. Still the book is very informative and well worth reading. For the hobbyists among us, the author offers a number of low cost methods to investigate each interface method. Thank you Mr. Lee and I look forward to your advanced user edition.

    Practical is Right

    The examples and code are excellent illustrations of the concepts being discussed. I implemented the socket and serial examples dealing with building a chat application and am currently working on a RFID project for work. Note: While it is a good read, it is neccessary to actually build the applications and step through the code to really grasp the topic.
