It feels like November is wizzing by and I realised we are only a few weeks from another CSLUG!
I'll get the registration links up soon but first, is there anyone that would like to talk? Or any topics that you are interested in hearing about? Let me know and I'll get an agenda sorted soon.
P.S. A forum update appears to have scrubbed the slug! He will return when I'm on another computer with the image.
I could use 20 minutes or so talking about the recent work I've been doing on network communication in Messenger Library, making the TCP Messengers easier to use and adding UDP Messengers. I could also talk about applications involving multiple EXEs on the same computer interacting, rather than actual distributed systems.
Yes please James (Powell) - I'd like to see that. I had the idea of using a kind of "universal broadcast" message system that all my modules can use, if the modules are running in the same instance they just use a user event, to pick up the broadcasts, but I added an optional UDP "broadcast" so that other applications on the same pc could listen - I had to add a upd "server" type thing that listeners register to ask that there's one central listener (the server) that all UDP broadcasts are sent to, and then the other listeners setup their own communication with the server and it rebroadcasts them out. I'd love to hear how you do inter-app communication on the same machine too, as my approach has a few limitations!
Both those topics sound perfect James. I am starting to design a system that will need multiple exe's communicating on the same or multiple PC's so this comes just at the right time.
Nice - consider yourself signed up James 🙂
