In this workshop, we will together build telemetry/analytics data processing pipelines to assist game developers/architects, designers and producers. We will use a fictitious RPG and ingest data from in-game events. We will then analyze the data to help with game balancing, troubleshooting and other relevant recommendations for game developers and designers. As a participant, you will use Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Kinesis Firehose, Amazon Analytics, Amazon EMR, Amazon Redshift, Amazon S3, Amazon Athena and Amazon QuickSight.
