One Perl programmer's inside view of the industry that is Vegas electronic gaming and the story of how a small startup using Perl succeeded in bringing a new technology to market where larger players failed.

Onerous security requirements and regulations left other vendors stuck. I'd like to talk about some of the challenges we faced meeting these requirements, how we solved them using Perl, and how Perl is uniquely suited to unique challenges.

I'd also like to give an inside, but censored, view of this seldom seen and fascinating industry, talking about the the regulations, politics, hardware, history, and security.
