You can do away with a lot of build jobs/Jenkins with our system. Content producers can promote their content and microservices directly through the portal. They don't have to rely on DevOps build processes. Content can move up through lower environments and into production with full control and without the need for engineering.
We communicate with clarity, transparency, candor, and honesty. We strive for alignment. We discuss challenges and decisions so we know what we are doing and why we are doing it, fostering a productive environment where we can accomplish our best and most valuable work.
We connect as people. We celebrate each other in the good and support each other in the bad. It is a marathon, not a sprint. We are all in this together, as a team, tackling the meaningful and hard problems, learning, growing, and living.

Beamable enables game makers to rapidly build and operate live games in three key ways:
First, Beamable is fully Unity native. Through the Beamable Unity SDK, game makers have access to full content deployment and pre-built skinnable prefabs that make adding live features to a game as easy as drag and drop. Beamable is completely integrated with the workflow game makers already know as a Unity developer.
Second, Beamable is revolutionizing live game server programming through C# Microservices. You create a microservice in your Unity project, write it in C#, and all of your server code lives right next to your client code. There is no need to learn other languages or jump around in other programming environments or cloud code interfaces. It's all there. Client and server, all in Unity. The entire game in one place. In one language.
Third, Beamable allows you to manage all game content in multiple convenient ways. For Unity developers, content can be created directly inside the Unity editor. Content can also be managed via a web-based admin portal. With the portal you can conduct player support, make game edits, and other changes. Finally, for game designers, they can use a Google Sheets plug-in called the Beamable Game Content Designer to render your content in spreadsheets and immediately deploy it up through your game environments with ease.
Beamable makes it easier than ever to build the live game of your dreams. You design the world, you design the economy, you build the player experience using a workflow-centric approach in Unity, and Beamable handles the rest.
Once you download the Unity SDK and give it a try, you'll see what we're talking about!
