We've been looking at one track daily in the run-up to the Seattle event to get you filled in before you fly out, and today's no different.
Today's track is Live Ops Landscape, brand new for 2019. More than ever, live games dominate the mobile marketplace and our speakers will be helping you keep players invested for months (or even years) after release.
10:20: PlayFab live ops evangelist Crystin Cox commences the day’s sessions with a keynote on time-limited events and how they can drive significant engagement and retention in live games.
10:40: Next, learn how to properly plan for live ops with Wooga product lead Patrick McGrath. His framework aims to help you boil down post-launch support by identifying the necessary steps to take on a game-by-game basis.
11:00: Playkot’s Daniel McLaren follows with a session on managing live operations through the game’s core design, getting everyone from designers to shareholders on board with building a live game from scratch.
11:20: Sit down with A Thinking Ape’s Finn-Lily Hartwood and Nicole Maiorano for a panel on what inclusive content is - and why it’s important. The gaming audience is vast and making sure you represent that diversity properly can be a powerful tool.
11:40: Wrap up our Live Ops track with a session by Yokozuna Data CEO África Periañez, explaining how the company used machine learning and big data to master player spending predictions.
This is just a taste of the full 10-track lineup taking place at the Seattle show the year.
