Road to Success - Mobile Game Development Alternatives
Monday, July 1, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, United States
Mobile Game Development Alternatives:
Strategies, implications and cross-platform frameworks review
Almost all game developers go through the painful process of deciding which technologies are best to use and which architecture to adopt when developing a game from scratch. This process would be more flexible if developers within the company had a vast range of development skills. However, often developers know a technology rather well and other technologies to a lesser extent. This is where multi-platform frameworks could come in handy!
On Monday July 1st at 6PM, we have invited Andrew Burgert, GM of Mobile at Globant to talk about these mobile game development alternatives and how you should go about choosing the best technology for you!
