UNICORN conquers the Nordic Game 2019: SME workshop and UNICORN stand

Nordic Game conference is Europe’s leading largest games industry conference, attracting thousands of industry professionals annually. UNICORN was not only fortunate to be present in the conference, but also had a chance to address the conference’s SME attendees in the UNICORN workshop.

The Nordic Game Fast Track was opened by, and hosted by, UNICORN, with the workshop titled “Surviving Success: Using UNICORN Cloud Infrastructure”, by Miikka Lyytikäinen of Aniway (one of the UNICORN validator SMEs) and Erik Robertson of Redikod. Attending developers raised many questions which were answered in the Q&A session and later even followed up with participants by e-mail!

The track and room were all sponsored by UNICORN, exposing some 700+ participants to the poster and other communication materials. Finally, UNICORN was also featured in sponsor display materials reaching thousands of international participants!

Nordic Game conference, traditionally, took place in Malmö, Sweden on the 22nd-24th of May.

UNICORN’s contribution to European standardisation (update)

The UNICORN project intends to develop a solution to simplify the design, deployment and management of secure and flexible multi-cloud services. The project results will be transferred into a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) titled “Analytics Insights and Scaling Policies for Microservices”. Standardization is considered as an important and relevant topic by the project consortium. It is as an important tool to transfer knowledge from research into practice. The overall goal of the envisaged CEN Workshop Agreement is to give guidelines for platform-agnostic elasticity management of elastic-by-design microservices.

The CWA kick-off meeting took place in November 2018 in Athens. The Workshop participants discussed the structure of the document and agreed on future actions. This led to a first draft, which was presented at the UNICORN Plenary meeting in Alicante in April 2019. The first draft is an early version of the CWA, which will be enhanced by the end of May 2019. After completing the draft, the open commenting phase will be launched by CEN-CENELEC Management Centre (CCMC) for a duration of two months. This enables the public to submit technical comments to the draft CWA. After the commenting the phase is over, the Workshop participants will collect the comments and discuss whether they should be accepted or rejected in order to proceed with the finalization of the CWA. The CWA will be published by the end of 2019.
