PlayFab -- Now Serving JavaScript SDK via CDN

Web developers will be pleased to know that our latest JavaScript SDK can now be pulled directly from our Content Delivery Network (CDN). CDN delivery offers many benefits:

  1. Hassle-free upgrading - Always get the latest SDK.
  2. Help your site load assets faster - Download in parallel across various endpoints.
  3. Network effect - Incredibly fast downloads after DNS caching.
  4. Top-of-the-line service - Count on AWS CloudFront's high-capacity, distributed data centers
  5. Developers' protocol choice - Fetch via HTTP or HTTPS.
  6. Faster iteration - Develop demos, test projects and prototypes faster with virtually zero project setup.
  7. Keep your bandwidth - Share our bandwidth and server time.
