In 2021, the gaming industry brought in $180 billion in revenue, which is larger than Hollywood and the music industry combined. Games are huge, and most importantly, they are fun! Come and get hands on experience on how to use AWS in the gaming world.
Whether your intent is to create video games for fun or as part of an established games studio, it is absolutely vital to understand the online technical aspects of game production.
Today, popular MMO's, multi-player and session based games rely on cloud technology such as in AWS to connect players, handle game sessions, store persistent data and provide low-latency experiences. AWS is a leader in the game industry, backing AAA publishers and studios such as Epic, Capcom, Rovio, Gearbox, Sony Interactive, WB Games and many more.
If you are just starting out or want to learn more, come expand your knowledge of game creation and online experiences at an introductory session hosted by Isaac Lenhart, Solutions Architect with AWS for Games in Denmark. This session is aimed at those with less experience or who are new to the cloud and gaming, but all are welcome to inform future topics.
In this 60 minute session, we will:
- Explain where game production and the AWS cloud intersect and what capabilities are most important.
- Show practical examples of workflows and architectures on how games are made and played in AWS cloud
- Q&A, open discussion and survey of future topics of interest
An optional 30 minute workshop will follow, in which we take a small sample game, host it in AWS, and connect to it as a client. Attendees can either follow along in real time as it is demonstrated, or bring their own laptop and try it themselves.
Attendees who wish to try themselves will need:
- Laptop with a browser (to connect to AWS Console)
Temporary AWS Accounts will be handed out to be used during the workshop.
