 Networking by Example with the Packet Construction Set, George Neville-Neil

 PCS is a set of Python classes and libraries that is currently used for 
 network security and conformance testing. The purpose of PCS is to allow 
 the programmer to express themselves more naturally in network code. All 
 of the bit shifting and low level manipulation usually associated with 
 network programming is handled by the library, allowing the programmer 
 to treat packets as objects, with fields that directly mirror the ones 
 described in IETF and IEEE documents.

 To date PCS has been used to test several protocols, including IGMPv3, 
 IPv4, IPv6, The Precision Time Protocol, Yahoo Messenger and several others.

 In this talk I will cover the basics of PCS, how to get started with it, 
 and how to use it in your own work.
