Event Details


description

Using game mechanics and game design techniques in non-game contexts like business applications have shown significant increases in user engagement, and increased the ROI and other metrics. In this talk we will learn what business can learn from Angry Birds. We will shatter stereotypes about games, show what gamified applications you already use, give you some facts and figures on the impact of gamification on results, and highlight examples in the corporate world.
