    What do you need to know to make a successful mobile game company? It's the number one question asked to Tobiah Marks. You already know you need to think about things like monetization, but did you know file size can be an even more important factor? Tobiah will explain his philosophy on how to outmaneuver your competition using real-world examples. His advice can be applied to app development on all platforms.


    Attendees will learn about app store optimization techniques, be inspired to not give up on their prototypes and iterate, encouraged to release early and often onto as many app stores as possible, and most importantly, convinced to treat their games as "services" rather than "products."
