I’ve been trying to make something and document it everyday; whether it is a sketch of an idea or concept, or simply a tutorial to learn. Today it was a chat room tutorial using node.js, socket.io and express. I’m interested in learning more about networked gaming and real time updates between clients. This was a fun morning project and taught me some basics:
- setting up a server with express,
- using socket.io to create users and communicate data,
- and ultimately build a small scale networked application.
I’m excited about what can be made with foundations in these concepts.
