Wunderlist: the high Volume, Multi-Master, Cross-Platform, Distributed Database System / 11:50 - 12:05

Wunderlist may look like "just a productivity app", but under the covers it's much more. It's a cross-platform, mobile, desktop, and web application with distributed database replication amongst millions of potential collaborators.
This talk will highlight some of the primary challenges and solutions in creating such a system to operate at scale.

There should be a Service for that / 12:10 - 12:25

Persistence, error analytics, push notifications, payments, ab testing, reporting - there are many services out there to help running and operating mobile apps. At Wooga we've tried out many of them. But while these services offer good value to normal apps, they often lack support for a few critical use cases that are needed to operate mobile games at scale. We’ll talk about a few examples where Wooga ended up building its own services in the end and why.

For service providers this talk is an opinionated cry for help. For everyone else this talk is about why even good services are sometimes not good enough.
