Kiosk Software Case Study - Ticketmaster

Discussion of ticketmaster project. Notes on entry page.

One hour talk at recent conference for Flex. A high-level overview of the new Ticketmaster Kiosk. Covers items ranging from internationalization, security and other items.

This talk by Kevin Fauth provides a rare look under the hood and behind the scenes of fairly massive kiosk software project. Also shows the new gui interface which actually reminds me of the old Novell carousel menu (back when 286 at 12 Mhz was speedster I seem to recall...). Little things here like memory leaks from 3rd party apps and having to accomodate the latest designer fad of reflecting everything are discussed. Nice notes though funniest part is when he notes "some might have been censored out by company since proprietary" and as he scrolls down he begins to see everything blacked out.

Great talk and highest recommendation.
