“HTTP Programming Recipes for C# Bots”, written by Jeff Heaton, is free to read online. This book presents a collection of very reusable recipes for C# bot programming.
The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) allows information to be exchanged between a web server and a web browser. C# allows you to program HTTP directly. HTTP programming allows you to create programs that access the web much like a human user would. These programs, which are called bots, can collect information or automate common web programming tasks.
