Welcome to part III of the Realtime Whiteboard App with NodeJS. In this last part I will provide a link to the Android client that I wrote some time ago in Java which targeted the Android SDK version 19.
A while back I had interviewed with a company that was looking to hire a full-stack developer with experience building Android apps and who knew just enough NodeJS to work on their realtime socket-based backend code. After speaking on the phone the company and I came to the conclusion that they would judge my application on how well I performed on the take-home coding assignment which was to develop a real-time whiteboard/drawing application together with an accompanying Android app.
In this tutorial we’ll learn how to write a client for a feature limited chat server in C++ using the Boost libraries. The codebase for this tutorial is a bit dated as many of the features included by Boost are now apart of the C++ standard library but knowledege of Boost is still worthy of merit in case you run into the many C++ projects which make use of it.
