Episode 1: You Put My Data Where?!

Download the Episode Here

Woe is me! Ryan breaks a few hearts in this episode with his west coast news, so it was tough pulling Zack away from his bucket of Breyers ice cream and stopping him from binge watching the whole second season of “Friends” in order to record this week.

That said, today’s episode is a bit of a doozy as we get rather intimate with a slew of data solutions for Unity. We talk about the built-in Unity PlayerPrefs, the cloud storage solution Parse.com, and a few others that we’ve played around with while developing our games.

Thanks again for tuning in this week and we hope you enjoyed the show! If you have any other data solutions that you absolutely love, or absolutely abhor, feel free to drop us a line at: thedebuglog@gmail.com

    Awesome! Thanks for the feedback.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the episode. In this episode we outline a few different data storage solutions, some of which work amazingly for mobile. As far as our Unity video tutorials, we have already started work on a few courses but we do not have any official date for when they will be released.

    In an effort to be a bit less vague though, we are shooting to have a course or two released by Unity’s Unite 2015 in Boston.

    Also, the best way to be notified on these things is to sign up for our Newsletter as we will be sending several updates through it. Thanks again!

    New fan here. Great job! I’ve used Parse a while ago, but I noticed they’re closing down in a year, or at least that’s what I read in the last email I received. Is there an alternative that is on par with them?

    I really enjoy your podcast.

    Do you guys think that the open source version of Parse Server is a viable option? Or, would you suggest going in a different direction?

    Parse has been shut down. 😛

    Firebase is a similar option.
