The London Amazon Appstore Developer Summit is designed to provide you with insights into the Amazon eco-system, emerging user interfaces that are driving new user behaviors, and new business models that are opening up opportunities for customers and the developer community. The event will include developer guest speakers, from disruptive start-ups to established consumer brands who are at the forefront of innovation in their market segments.
Here are is a sneak peek of some of the key items on the agenda:
Bringing Apps and Games to the Living Room
In this session, we cover what's needed to bring your Android app or game to Fire TV. We walk you through controller support for a game scenario (buttons and analog sticks), controller support for UI (selection, moving between menu items, invoking the keyboard), and how to account for the form factor (overscan, landscape, device and controller detection). By the end of this session, you’ll be able to understand what you need to do if you want to build or modify your own app to work on a TV.
An introduction to using Amazon Web Services and the Alexa Skills Kit to Build Voice Driven Experiences
Come learn firsthand how to build for Amazon Echo and Amazon Voice Service enabled devices using the Alexa Skills Kit and Amazon Web Services. This session will walk through using Amazon Echo and how to build your first Alexa Skill using both AWS Lamda and AWS Beanstalk. We'll also take a look at how to monitor your new Alexa Skill using AWS CloudWatch and how to submit it for certification so it's available to customers later this year.
Amazon Underground: Where Apps Are Free and Developers Are Paid per Minute
In most app store models, developers are paid a revenue share based on the initial purchase of the app or the in-app purchases. With Amazon Underground’s innovative monetization approach, Amazon pays you for every minute a customer uses your Amazon Underground app, and customers pay nothing.
5 Best Practices of Top-Earning Mobile Apps
Amazon is famously metrics-driven and obsessed with customer satisfaction. In its role as a mobile app publisher, it is perfectly positioned to analyze and interpret millions of mobile downloads and in-app purchases, leading to some surprising and intriguing insights into mobile app engagement and monetization. Here Amazon presents the results of a cohort analysis designed to identify best practices common among the top 50 revenue-generating apps and games in its Amazon Appstore for Android.
