As software developers, a lot of the time we’re building applications that rely on some sort of network connection. Due to Ruby’s great abstractions we take most of the network related stuff for granted. We think we know how all of that works, but do we? Let’s go over the fundamentals together, learn about how Ruby models TCP Sockets and how we can make a good use of it.
This talk will explore the fundamentals of programming with sockets. This includes creating sockets, client and server life-cycle, reading and writing data, non-blocking IO and connection multiplexing. We’ll wrap up by looking at how those concepts are used in real world problems by web servers.
