With just a few weeks remaining before AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas on November 12-15, sessions and speakers for the Mobile and Gaming track have been finalized. We have a lot of great content lined up, with a special emphasis on using Amazon services to simplify mobile development across platforms. This includes an entire session dedicated to high-level APIs for data synchronization, retaining players and increasing engagement, and modifying live apps in the wild without having to republish them (even across marketplaces).
Sourabh Ahuja, VP of Android and Cross-Platform Development at Glu Mobile, is one of the featured guest speakers. Focusing on the problem of syncing game data to the cloud, he will discuss the details of Whispersync for Games and how it is used in Glu products. He will share his experiences using the service with data that cannot be automatically merged, using code samples to illustrate how data conflicts can be resolved manually in those cases. He will also offer tips and tricks for using Whispersync with Unity3D.
Complementing the technical sessions, office hours will allow developers to meet one-on-one with Amazon engineers and solutions architects to address specific issues or discuss individual services in depth. Office hours will run throughout the conference, but we will also designate certain times when experts will be on-hand to answer questions about specific services. Use that schedule to connect with the engineer expert in your topic of interest, then dive deep into their area of expertise.
We will offer office hours dedicated to (among other subjects) In-App Purchasing, Mobile Ads, GameCircle, Whispersync for Games, A/B Testing, Amazon Maps, HTML5 Web App Distribution, and many more. The conference is almost sold out, so register now to reserve your place and guarantee access to great developer content and expert support.
