Welcome to this Course on TCP/IP Socket Programming. Unlike other Courses, this is Advanced Course on Socket Programming. This course assumes that you are already familiar with Socket Programming basics and now want to take it to the next level. This course is about how TCP/IP Socket Programming is deployed in the industry to solve complex networking problems.


We will go beyond simple implementation of client/servers programs present all over the internet ( Advanced Course )


Course objective: Learn how to implement a typical complex Socket based Programs, closely tied to thread management


In this course, we will be going to build the Complete TcpServer Program in which we will cover :


  1. How to manage Multiple Clients through Multiplexing
  2. Creating Multi-Threaded Clients
  3. Forcefully disconnecting the client
  4. Gracefully Shutting down TCP Server
  5. Notifying events to the application
    1. Client new connection
    2. Client disconnection
    3. Client msg recvd
  6. Detecting connection live-ness using Keep-Alive msgs
  7. Handling Concurrency using locks
  8. Maintaining statistics per client connection
  9. TCP Message Demarcation
  10. Client Migration from Multiplexed to Multi-Threaded ( Or Vice Versa )
  11. Building Socket Programming C++ Library over Posix


Pre-requisites :

1. Basic knowledge of TCP/IP Socket Programming through C/C++

2. C/C++ programming ( Intermediate Level )

3. Multi-Threading Basic Concepts ( creating a thread, Cancelling a thread, Producer/Consumer Pattern, Binary and Zero Semaphores )

4. Zeal to learn, explore and do research

5. Linux-based Course, should be done on Linux/MAC-OS only. No Windows Pls.

6. You should have a GitHub account.


This Course is not a :

1. Teaching basic Socket Programming and fundamentals

2. C/C++ programming language tutorial

3. Data Structure or Algorithm Course

4. Multithreading Tutorial


* We don’t use any third-party library. Everything is built up from scratch.

* This Course is protected by a full refund policy within 30 days of purchase

* The Emphasis of this course is on Logistics & Concepts, rather than Programming Language. You should be able to do this Course in a programming language of your choice – Java/Python etc.
