Contact : Prof. Jaejin Lee (02-880-1863)
For competition in the mobile gaming industry getting fierce, mobile game developers now face tough challenges including handling a different service landscape and working on a tight time budget. These obstacles lead the developers to seek handy solutions to abstract away development complexity and to reduce overall development cycle. This talk will focus especially on the back-end side of mobile game services. It will first review issues in mobile game services, then highlight the requirements of back-end services for the services. Finally, the talk will propose a vertically-integrated back-end platform.
