What are rooms and why use them?
- [Instructor] Welcome to the section…using rooms and namespaces in Socket.io.…In the last section we learned the basics…of connecting clients and then sending messages…in real time to the clients with Socket.io.…In this section we will add to that knowledge…by covering rooms and namespaces.…These are features of Socket.io to help segment…connected client.…Now in this video we're going to specifically cover rooms.…And we're gonna do that first.…So we will do this by covering the what and why,…and then finally we will create a simple room application.…
So let's get started.…First what are rooms?…A room is an area where we can group clients.…This is completely done on the server side.…The client does not know that they are in a room.…This allows us to treat that room…like its own little Socket.io area.…This means that we can listen, omit,…and broadcast to that room.…So why do this?…Well I think the easiest analogy to make…is a chat application.…I don't know if this is a current name,…but a few years back you could join a chat…
