We all want our product or software to be attractive to our users. But how do we create engagement? How do we keep our teams motivated?

Rules of Engagement is a Talk, delivered by Domingos Da Silva, which will clarify all doubts about software/product design, video games design and also decipher the excellent storytelling tool that supports the challenges of business and team reality.
