#12: Online Poker – Story of Software Podcast

This week Padraig Coffey, CEO at Zartis and podcast host, is joined by Aidan Donnelly, a technologist, who spent many years in the online poker business.



Note: The ‘History of Software’ podcast has been rebranded to The Story of Software. The focus remains on exploring technology from an evolutionary perspective of trying to understand how what we know today came to be. We will continue to explore topics from the early dawn of software technology to the state-of-the-art today and what is envisioned to come next.

The Story of Online Poker

When and what was the first online poker game? As many other platforms have appeared in the market since, what made some of them succeed and others fail?

Building an online poker platform means 24/7 availability, 100% accuracy when tracking money and the capacity to handle tens of thousands of players at the same time. What are the technical challenges when building an online poker system? What are the architecture and infrastructure considerations? How do you test it? What are the legal issues to consider?

Listen in for the answers to those questions and much more from the world of online poker.
