Here's another question for you, with regard to serialization and sockets:
ok I'm coming out of the closet. I coded a socket solution! There I feel better already
I've read the books, followed the tutorials but found sockets to be more intuitive and easier to work with.
However there's one point that I do not understand and cant find (or skipped over) relevant information. Why do some tutorials/examples use serialization with sockets and others not.
I've coded sockets with serialization (because its a requirement).
What is the defining moment when you should/ should not serialize with sockets?
