Realtime Games, Challenges and Solutions through BAAS

Talk Abstract:

We review the real-time and multiplayer gaming ecosystem with particular focus on Iran to establish the importance of realtime game development. We then delve into details and compare web-sockets with traditional REST services and discuss the most important challenges a game developer faces when developing a real-time game. Solving these challenges is important in order to achieve a scalable and highly available backend. We introduce Backtory's real-time messaging service and build a sample app that showcases Backtory's most important features. Finally, we conclude by providing the benefits of building your app with Backtory vs in-house development of the backend.
