Socket IO Chat client

======================

This is a simple chat client for Windows built for .NET 4.7 using WinForms and C#. Chat communication is done through socket.io, which is an open-source Javascript real-time messaging framework. Client is connected to a central server hosted on Azure Web Services, written in Node.js. Source code for the server can be found at the link below.
