Friday May 25, 2012 : QUICKFIRE DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE AN INDUSTRY FIRST
Operators and Development partners in open forum on technology and platform development
Microgaming-powered QuickFire held its first QuickFire Developers Conference last week, bringing operators and development partners around the table to discuss the future development and technology of the QuickFire platform.
A good turn out of 40 operator delegates and 12 development partners contributed to the QuickFire open platform strategy discussion. Other key topics included open platform systems, independent software development and the anticipated "Development Partner Software Development Life Cycle" workshop.
The conference was arranged to provide an open forum where development companies could network, gain knowledge from QuickFire technical experts, and contribute to the QuickFire open platform strategy.
Comments from delegates were positive with Henrik Holmgren of Betsson, Richard Swann of Unibet, Stuart McCarthy of BetClic and Gary Wimbridge of Sky Betting & Gaming agreeing: “As panel members at the QuickFire Developers Conference, we found the event to be a refreshing approach to supporting the delivery of innovative new gaming content to the market. QuickFire has clearly taken the lead in bringing together development partners and operators in an open exchange that will undoubtedly lead to the benefit of all players.”
Ashley Sandyford-Sykes, QuickFire spokesperson, said: “The event enlightened all parties as to each other’s needs and the outcome is a united belief that a continued focus on the quality and innovation of gaming content is necessary.
