09.11. Workshop by Amazon Web Services

Creating a game takes time. In an ideal world as a developer, you’d like to dedicate your attention to building gameplay features that entertain and engage players, not sink cycles on your game’s infrastructure. In reality, the decisions you make behind the scenes greatly impact your ability to provide a great player experience. But where do you start?
We will present common use cases to support the video game industry running on AWS, and some reference customers to get you excited about the possibilities of running your gametech workload on the cloud.

What you can expect to learn?

  • From game launch to scaling successful games, learn best practices on how to leverage the Cloud
  • Learn about the services best suited to incorporate into different game development workloads
  • How to use AWS to develop high-performance game experiences for your players
  • Gain insight into the tools available to better understand game engagement and player behaviour
  • Make more informed decisions around which AWS cloud services to use for game development
