Now that I have a running application that is, actually, a website based on MVC, I feel something strange. I wanted something like a classic web service, but instead, I got a bunch of pages, controllers and some generic classes to setup SignalR
Is that necessary? I think I’m taking my eye off my goal! I didn’t even want a website.
Hopefully somebody will help me. What would I do without Internet and my friends on Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype… ??
Just to keep myself on track:
From the beginning I tried to make a “hello world”-like application. Something to get me into the business. To be more specific, I thought of an (very simple, of course) application that consist of about a server a clients (pretty common!)
- The server accepts a number of clients.
- After a client is connected, the server keeps sending a text message every t seconds. For example, every 5 seconds, it sends a message “Hi, client n”.
- When the client receives the message, it should just show it on the screen.
To make it even better, I thought of making a Windows Phone 8 client.
What should I do, starting from the latest post on the matter, in order to get both server an client?
