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

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book's six chapters provide insight into programming with networked devices. . All in all, this could be a useful book for a high school student seeking a computer-based science project. Once the basic devices are operating, an industrious student or hobbyist could extend the project in order to incorporate additional operational features. The illustrations are clear, and an index is provided." (J. S. Edwards, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (8), August, 2008)
