Skillz Director of Developer Relations Speaks at Pocket Gamer Connects London

Our Director of Developer Relations recently spoke at Pocket Gamer Connects London, a multi-day conference with over 100 speakers focused on the mobile games industry. Every year at this event, speakers and attendees come from all over the world to participate and learn about the latest and greatest in mobile gaming.

David delivered a solo presentation entitled “How Developers Can Succeed in the Mobile eSports Space,” where he focused on the impressive growth of mobile as a platform for games and how it’s poised to forge the future of eSports. He outlined three keys for developer success in the mobile eSports space: understanding market trends, understanding player needs, and understanding future challenges. Finally, David discussed common challenges faced in the industry and how these issues can be addressed.

Attendees stated that they enjoyed the presentation, and especially liked the visuals and data provided by David’s slide deck. The speech was followed by a Q&A period, where people asked about the Skillz player matching algorithm, as well as Android distribution and future company growth. In addition to delivering his solo presentation, David also enjoyed having the opportunity to network with game developers and other stakeholders in the mobile gaming space.

Pocket Gamer Connects was an exciting opportunity for the Skillz team to connect with game developers from all over the world, and we look forward to speaking at additional Pocket Gamer events in the future!
