|Session Name:||All About That BaaS: To Build, Buy, or Rent a Server for Your Game?|
|Company Name(s):||Double Coconut|
|Track / Format:||GDC Mobile Summit|
You don't need to own Downton Abbey to realize the importance of a good server. These days, every mobile game, from the most casual puzzler to real-time hard-core battler, needs brawn and brains in the cloud. In this talk, Double Coconut CEO, David Fox, will look at some of the top Backend as Service providers out there such as SmartFox, Photon, GameSparks, PlayFab, and Unity Multiplayer and provide a no B.S., jargon-free overview making it clear who would want to use what and when. He will also discuss why building your own set of game services is sometimes a superior option.
