Social and online games are a multi-billion market and one of the fastest growing sectors of the global economy. With the acceleration of social media, games can go from zero to millions of users overnight — the latest example being OMGPOP’s Draw Something, a Pictionary-like game that broke all records when it went viral and skyrocketed to more than 50 million downloads and billions of drawings within a few weeks of launch.
If you are planning to build and launch a web application – growth is what you should be concerned with and prepared for. So how exactly can you architect an application, without breaking the bank, while sustaining a snappy and compelling application experience across the scaling spectrum?
In this presentation, James Phillips will focus specifically on the data management challenges web application developers face, and provide criteria for selecting a data management model that will provide the scalability and performance needed to support massive growth. The presentation will also highlight the architecture of OMGPOP’s Draw Something – an example of a game that was prepared for growth.
