WPF: P2P Chess - CodeProject

Introduction to article

The .NET Framework provides developers with a rich set class libraries that enable creation of visually compelling applications that can effectively communicate with each other. The two technologies that afford us this luxury are WPF and WCF. WPF provides the eye-candy while WCF enables communication. Some Windows (Win 7 and Vista) features also enable discovery and ad-hoc collaboration making it easier to find peers and send invitations for collaboration.
People Near Me (PNM), Windows Contacts, and Invitations are the Windows features that enable discovery and ad-hoc collaboration.
It is with all this in mind that I decided to develop an application that would make use of the previously mentioned technologies, and what better application than a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) chess game. P2P Chess specifically makes use of WPF, WCF, and PNM.
