Telesocial Launches In-Game Mobile-to-Mobile Calling for Unity

Telesocial Releases a Free Plug-In for Unity Developers to Add Social Voice Features to Games

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/04/12 -- Telesocial (www.telesocial.com), the San Francisco-based cloud telephony service platform, has released a free plug-in extension for the Unity engine and development tools that lets developers add mobile voice services into their games. Developers can now easily add a 3D fully functioning telephone or voicemail system into their game, which can be used to call other characters, initiate group calls or team conferencing directly from any Unity app -- with no cost to the developer!

Telesocial is the only solution for Unity developers to add free mobile-to-mobile calling, group calling, and voice features into their games in a safe and anonymous way. Phone numbers are secure and never shared. Additionally, Telesocial's editor extension is easy to integrate and does not require VoIP, client download or a headset. Developers can easily configure it with the integrated GUI tools.

"Game developers are always looking for new channels to enhance their games," says Eric Stone, CTO and co-founder of Telesocial. "With the Telesocial 3D plug-in, players can call other players for help, characters can leave messages or communicate with players. These are some of the many features that our plug-in can instantly add to a game and create a new social game mechanic," adds Stone.

In-game mobile calling is an innovative and powerful social feature that increases game retention and viralty. By adding mobile communications, developers can enhance the user experience and increase engagement in single-player, multi-player and social games.

Telesocial's editor extension is currently available to use in the US and can be downloaded in the Unity Asset Store. To learn more about Telesocial, please visit: www.telesocial.com

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
A valuable conference experience generates new contacts, sales leads, potential strategic partners and potential investors; helps gather competitive intelligence and even provides inspiration for new products and services. Conference Guru works with conference organizers to pass great deals to great conferences, helping you discover new conferences and increase your return on investment.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
