Your organization has spent years developing your game, and it's finally ready. If this was the 1980s, your game would come out on a cartridge or disc, be released to the world, and be done. But we're not there anymore.

Your game is no longer just a game.

Your game in an ongoing experience, supported by a constellation of microservices. These microservices must be in constant communication with your players, and with each other. To provide the best experience for your players, you need a messaging service that addresses the challenges of today. Join this session to learn more.


Join this session to learn how to better support microservice communications for your game with edge messaging, edge data processing and device management at the edge.

Intended Audience

Platform engineers, software architects, and anyone else with a focus on optimizing communications between micro services should join. No prerequisite knowledge is required, as I'll even give a brief overview of MQTT to ensure that we're all on the same page.
