One thing that the internet is not quite so good at is helping you introduce yourself to customers face to face. Last Wednesday evening I went to a Silicon Roundabout Meetup at Google Campus in Bonhill Street in Islington, London. There were over 200 people there.
I've done networking before and quite enjoy it though it's not everybody's cup of tea. I learnt one valuable lesson; it's difficult to show off an App you've created when your smartphone battery has zero charge! D'oh. I'd use maps with Location Services enabled to help me find the place and in a city it can drain the battery quite quickly. Next time, I'll make sure the charge is at 100%
Today I've spent some time switching my iPhone App's TCPClient in C# to run asynchronously using await and async. I've chosen to use TCPClient rather than Sockets but I'm not sure which is best. It sets up a connection, sends and waits for any data sent back and every 30 seconds checks for any new data. Any recommendations?
