Ad Blockers Are Changing the Game for Web Developers Too

Unless you’ve been living under a digital rock for the last few months, you’ve undoubtedly heard the buzzing echo of the raging ad blocking debates. And since Apple dropped a metaphorical bomb on the matter by allowing ad blockers apps on their iOS 9, the temperature just kept rising.

According to Page Fair’s now-infamous Ad Blocking report, around 200 million users run ad blocking software on their browsers. With the appalling state of some ad units and practices out there today, chances are this number will keep growing, a lot. Consequently, numerous posts highlighting issues faced by the concerned parties (content creators, publishers, advertisers & online users) were published.

This post will address the issues faced by another, slightly different party: SaaS startups & web developers.

The point of this article isn’t to take a firm stance on the whole ad blocking debate. Of course, we know darn well it can affect us: online advertising is an acquisition channel we’ve played with in the past, and we intended to try again sometime.

Thing is, for us, this issue goes much, much farther than paying for ads that are blocked by potential customers. Let me demonstrate how and why we came to pay closer attention to the whole thing.

So what happened to us, exactly?

The forbidden route

We know the ad blocking phenomenon isn’t exactly fresh from the oven. So why write about this now, you may ask?

Well recently, as most of our active users noticed, we released a whole new, revamped version of our merchant dashboard. It’s a key part of our product, where merchants handle inventory management, discounts, and a whole other bunch of stuff. All in all, the release went well, and we were proud of ourselves (especially of our lead engineer Charles). But after brushing off our shoulders and toasting with some good scotch, we realized something was wrong. When logging into the dashboard, many of us weren’t able to see the sales analytics and graphics on the default screen. After receiving two or three emails from customers, we knew there was a real problem to fix.

Yanick, one of our developers, put on his problem-solving cape and got to work. As every web developer would have done, he started by hitting the F12 key to open debugger tools. Soon enough, he found the source of the error:

uBlock Origin** was preventing Snipcart from fetching the URL /api/analytics in our dashboard.**

Game Development with .NET

We’ve launched a new Game Development with .NET section on our site. It’s designed for current .NET developers to explore all the choices available to them when developing games. It’s also designed for new developers trying to learn how to use .NET by making games. We’ve also launched a new game development Learn portal for .NET filled with tutorials, videos, and documentation provided by Microsoft and others in the .NET game development community. Finally, we launched a step-by-step Unity get-started tutorial that will get you started with Unity and writing C## scripts for it in no time. We are excited to show you what .NET has to offer to you when making games. .NET is also part of Microsoft Game Stack, a comprehensive suite of tools and services just for game development.

.NET for game developers

.NET is cross-platform. With .NET you can target over 25+ different platforms with a single code base. You can make games for, but not limited to, Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, and mixed reality devices.

C## is the most popular programming language in game development. The wider .NET community is also big. There is no lack of expertise and support you can find from individuals and user groups, locally or online.

.NET does not just cover building your game. You can also use it to build your game’s website with ASP.NET, your mobile app using Xamarin, and even do remote rendering with Microsoft Azure. Your skills will transfer across the entire game development pipeline.

Available game engines

The first step to developing games in .NET is to choose a game engine. You can think of engines as the frameworks and tools you use for developing your game. There are many game engines that use .NET and they differ widely. Some of the engines are commercial and some are completely royalty free and open source. I am excited to see some of them planning to adopt .NET 5 soon. Just choose the engine that better works for you and your game. Would you like to read a blog post to help you learn about .NET game engines, and which one would be best for you? core #azure #c# #game development #azure #cryengine #game developers #game development #game development with .net #game engines #games #monogame #playfab #stride #unity #visual studio #waveengine
