GDC is coming up and one session that should be relevant to anyone making a large game that needs the ability scale is on Friday, March 22nd at 1:30 PM in room 2000. Here’s a link to the announcement. Game development veterans from Boss Fight Entertainment, Certain Affinity, and Intel will be answering questions collected online for anyone interested in client/server architecture.

This is an approach to audience participation that takes full advantage of social media where anyone can ask a question here: https://www.leaseweb.com/events/game-developers-conference-sf-2019, or on Twitter @GamesNetworker using the hashtag #GDCBackendAMA.

After the session, Leaseweb has promised to post the responses in a blog post on their site. Maybe we can get someone there to live tweet the session.
