Drake will talk about what it takes to build, MapAttack, a truly real-time location-based geofencing game. Challenges and limitations, advantages and disadvantages will be discussed.
He'll also discuss the technology behind MapAttack, including Sinatra Synchrony for Ruby, which he built specifically for the Geoloqi's geofencing game MapAttack. He'll also cover what it took to build Geoloqi's real-time streaming API and how it can be used to bring real-time location functionality to existing applications.
