We are delighted to announce our first keynote speaker, Damien Marshall.
Damien Marshall works with Demonware as a Team Lead in Title Development. In this role he works on developing the technologies that power the online components of some of the worlds biggest games, such as Call of Duty. He holds a Phd in Electronic Engineering from NUI Maynooth, where he specialised in the study of data management mechanisms for online games.
Prior to working at Demonware, Damien worked as a lecturer on the Computer Games Development course at IT Carlow and also lectured on the Electronic Engineering course at NUI Maynooth
Damien will discuss how Python is a crucial component to the success of Demonware. Using case studies of services developed for shipped games, he will explain how and why Demonware first embraced Python as one its core technologies, and how Demonware continues to use it to develop services that can scale to handle tens of thousands of requests per second with millisecond request response times.
