Getting into Sockets!

So if you read my last post, I was looking at creating an online chat app and me being me dived right into it and then I got hit with Sockets!

I decided to not do my usual thing and try to build an app without understanding what I’m actually doing, and instead start right at the start and that’s learning about sockets.

I’ve started watching a Youtube playlist that explains all about sockets and then eventually gets you to build your own chat app. Perfect!

So I currently have a service where I have a server that can receive a connection from a client, which I will show below.


So from the above video, you should be able to see me spinning my server up and then connecting a client to it.

This is one small step to me creating my Chat app!
