PlayFab is a complete back-end-as-a-service for mobile games. The service can alleviate backend work for game teams by managing servers and comes with a pre-built database. In addition to the PlayFab SDKs, developers can interact directly with the service through their set of Web APIs. All API calls are made as HTTP POST requests, and data is formatted in JSON. Using the PlayFab APIs, developers can perform authentication, account and data management, matchmaking, reporting, track inventory, friends, as well as initiate platform-specific functionalities. More API functions allow developer maintained servers to interact with user data, handle the orchestration of client connections, manage title configurations, receive user data, and more.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
