We can all learn a lot by studying game developers. These companies have been at the forefront of data-driven optimization for some time because they live and die by by the quality of the player experience they deliver amidst a constant stream of releases.
The Innovation Conundrum
If you’re not innovating, you’re losing player engagement. But at the same time, every release introduces risk: that features won’t work right or that performance will be slow. And one bad release can cost you up to 70% of the future revenue (LTV) from players who happen to install that day.
I’m really excited that Loggly will be exhibiting at the Game Developer Conference March 19th-21st in San Francisco – it’s our opportunity to meet hundreds of our game development customers. I’m even more excited that we’ll be able to take one lucky person with us as a VIP guest!
Learning from the Best
Do you need to know how to balance the needs of millions of concurrent users and hundreds of developers, optimize a distributed cloud environment, push code daily, and stay sane? The secret, of course, is taking advantage of the data in your logs and being proactive.
