We’ve already seen how to create a simple socket server in Python, but sometimes we need to handle multiple incoming requests simultaneously, that require processor-heavy computation from the server. That’s what a threaded socket server can achieve.
Sockets are one of the most commonly used communication tools on computers, but they can be hard to understand at first. If you break it down however, it’s easy to understand how to use them. In this tutorial we’re going to learn how to implement a simple socket server in Python, that will accept a single client connection.
