As games get increasingly connected and social, Gearbox turned to the cloud to enable us to connect with customers in new ways. Our AAA console, PC, and mobile titles are now backed by an increasingly rich set of web services on the Amazon Web Services platform. We'll talk about how we built our platform, how we have evolved it in the 18 months since launch, and where we think things are going. Learn about how cloud technology can be used in an exciting and dynamic industry to solve interesting and challenging problems.
