Windows Phone comes with several built-in options to do networking, for example to access web services or conveniently make http requests. But with the recent "Mango" update, several new options have been added that enable additional scenarios like multiplayer gaming or instant messaging – all of which were hardly possible before, or only with several limitations in place. In this webinar we will take a look at these features and learn how you can use them to enable performant, custom networking in your application.
The contents in particular:
  • Sockets: an overview of the new networking features in "Mango"
  • TCP vs. UDP: making a decision
  • Sample code
  • Obstacles during development and testing
  • [Optional] Advanced topic: Multicast

Presenter: Peter Kuhn
