11,000 Rockets and Counting: Behind the Scenes of AppShip

Talk: 11,000 Rockets and Counting: Behind the Scenes of AppShip
Description: For Google I/O 2018 we took on a massive effort of designing and building a unique, fun Firebase + Unity powered game for attendees. It wasn't that simple though, we also manufactured thousands of procedurally generated rocket ships on collectible cards so every attendee had their own unique rocket to take home. We'll dive into the silly, clever nitty-gritty of how we built the game, the cards, and the card scanners in record time.
