Meetup #2 - Uken Games

Uken Games

We will have a talk from Gihad Murad - Chief Architect from Uken Games: https://www.linkedin.com/in/engineering/ Last year Gihad lead an ambitious project involving Uken Games, a company in Nova Scotia and Sony Pictures in California. The scale of the project pushed technology boundaries!! There is a HOT new genre of entertainment experience which is a mixture of Live TV with Mobile Game where players and the show host interact in real time (e.g.: HQ Trivia). To develop a solution in this category Uken faced several technical challenges such as sending 2 million requests in 1 second to players via TCP. This talk will be a high-level technical overview of the different parts of technology that powers this product including the stacks for video streaming, service-oriented architecture for game backends, bidirectional real-time communication and Uken's data platform which has Apache Spark at its centre. ____________ Schedule: 6:00pm - Check-in, Socialize & Eat Pizza 6:30pm - Interactive Mobile Trivia Game Talk 7:15pm - Q&A 7:45pm - Meetup Conclusion ____________
