my guess is that he means what is sometimes known as "socket programming" -- programming that allows one to create applications that will communicate with network resources or perform networking-related functions (i.e.: a program that will ping something upon request, establish a connection with a remote server, etc).
only toward the end of my experience/passion for programming did i start to want to search for the programming language that would be best for network programming -- I didn't find any.
