FileCatalyst at Austin GDC

posted in: FileCatalyst | 0

One of our favourite events last year was the GDC held in Austin, TX. This year is shaping up for a similar positive experience. Part of what makes the event is the event itself– meeting up with game developers and people from related fields always results in some interesting conversations. The other part of it is the location. If your path crosses with some of the Austin locals, you’re likely to meet some of the friendliest people around.

At the GDC, FileCatalyst will not be focusing on a particular product. Our three main products (FileCatalyst Direct, FileCatalyst Webmail, and FileCatalyst Workflow) each have a potential place in the kinds of organizations attending the show. Workflow and Direct tended to get the most attention at last year’s show (Workflow is a submission and tracking system; Direct provides a point-to-point solution and the “core” acceleration technology) but Webmail is a great choice for organizations that are looking to move beyond “email attachment” as a file transfer method.

We have always had a client-side API and SDK, but this past year has seen us bring our other options (web services, javascript API for applets, .NET wrapper) together under one umbrella, named rather obviously as “FileCatalyst Development Kit“. The Development Kit brings together several options for people wanting to augment or create their own file transfer system with FileCatalyst technology at its core.

Come see us at GDC Austin at booth 827. The expo runs from the 16th to the 18th.
