Soft question: UDP techniques book?

Is there a good "UDP cookbook" ? Preferably Rust, but I'm okay with C/C++/Java as well. Mainly I'm curious to see what techniques people use to build on UDP.

What kind of cookbook do you have in mind? I'm curious what questions you have, or what your problem space is.

I'd be interested in something like this, too!

There are probably no explicit "UDP Cookbooks" but I'm guessing there are going to be common networking patterns for various tasks, many of which will use UDP as the implementation.

  1. This is a great question.

  2. Unfortunately, I don't know what I don't know.

  3. Some interesting topics would be: audio, voice, gaming, udp based pub-sub, implementing tcp over udp, ... . I suspect, over the years, people have developed a number of udp 'design patterns', and I am hopping for a textbook treatment of the topic.
