November Meeting

Post by chipsm » Wed Oct 31, 2012 6:18 pm

I remember that we left a November meeting as a possible event even though Richard would not be in attendance.
Any word from the group on a November meeting? I for one am still interested.

Thanks Paul,
This meeting was very informative.
As we broke the meeting there were some discussions about our next meeting. We talked about examining how sockets work on a very basic level and possibly making a small application using sockets and an Ascii type database.
I look forward to the next meeting.

This Lesson is a good introduction to using sockets in LiveCode:

If there's interest I could dig up the old mchttpd stack and pass it around as an example of making a simple web server entirely in LiveCode.

I think that would be cool.
Thanks.
I saw this post on the RunRev Site. I need to spend a little time trying it out.

Yep, sockets can be a lot of fun but will take some experimentation to use well. I like 'em for peer-to-peer apps, but for client-server I prefer working at a higher level letting HTTP do most of the work, being a well-defined protocol with lots of tools available.

I'll dig up that mchttpd stack and see if I can clean it up in time for the Dec. meeting.
