Question:

Describe some of the considerations you would make when choose the network protocols to use in an online multiplayer game.

Inactive
Andrew C.
Answer:

The candidates protocols would likely be TCP and UDP, or potentially WebSockets if the game was played in a browser. The distilled differences between TCP and UDP can be summarized as: TCP will be slower but will guarantee in-order deliver of packets. UDP will be faster but delivery is not guaranteed and so the developer must implement an error-handling strategy. WebSockets would primarily be used in a browser as they are a WebAPI implemented with TCP.

Answer:

The benefits are numerous, for instance: • Resource handling through smart pointers (e.g. unique_ptr) and general resource management through the RAII pattern (Resource Acquisition Is Initialization) greatly reduces bugs • Expanded STL data structures and algorithms, including lambda functions, allow for faster development with less "re-inventing the wheel" • Niceties like uniform initialization, range based loops, and even parallel algorithms help developers focus on the important task of solving problems.
