Hear trial-and-error stories that led to panelists' successes as we discuss everything from experimenting with shaky new platform APIs, to scaling at break-neck speed and porting across platforms. These social games grow from zero to millions of DAU (daily active users), generating revenues ranging from zero dollars to figures with many trailing zeros! In 2009, the market for online social games exceeded $1B. Our panelists will share best practices, tips, tricks, and even pitfalls of designing and implementing social gaming with a user base experiencing exponential growth.
This Women 2.0 event on social gaming is open to both women and men. Ticket price includes cupcakes, sparkling beverages, and more. Special thanks to Pillsbury for sponsoring this Women 2.0 event, and Shirley Lin (Founder, YoXi123) for driving the program and panel.
