Yan Cui on F# and .NET in Social Gaming

The social gaming landscape often paints a picture of cloud computing, NoSQL databases, and PHP! With over 3 million monthly users and 2 games inside the top  30 grossing apps on Facebook, GameSys is a company that's finding its feet amongst the leaders in the field. In this session, Yan will share some insight into how GameSys uses a polyglot stack evolving around .Net to build their games and the different kinds of scalability and big data challenges they have to face for each game.

Yan is a C#/F# developer working for GameSys, his focus is on building highly distributed and scalable server-side solutions for their social games on  Facebook.
