Windows 8.1 Sockets

Although Windows Store apps run in a security sandbox, the Windows Runtime provides a rich set of APIs that enable connectivity over sockets. WinRT supports the new HTML5 WebSocket specification but also allows apps to connect via TCP and UDP for real-time streaming connectivity. Join Jeremy Likness as he walks through several examples of apps using socket protocols to establish communications and demonstrates the ease of interfacing with the Windows Runtime sockets APIs.

    Hey guys just saw that the new 8.1 Update now lets Sideloaded apps communicate via network loopback. Thought it might be useful to some of you. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn640582.aspx

    Jeremy, thanks for introducing this and showing how simple it can be.

    Tara and Diego, I tried to register for Thursday's Azure boot camp mentioned last night, but registration is closed. Is it full?

      Hello Rich, to be honest I don't know why you were able to register. But you can come around and I will make sure you appear on the list somehow. Thanks for coming to our events, I hope you have a good time.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
