The Never Rewrite Podcast, Episode Twenty-Six, The Ticket Master – Computerizing India’s Railways with Aadil Farid, Part 1

In Episode 26 of Never Rewrite, Special Guest Aadil Farid joins Isaac and I to discuss the harsh realities he confronted leading a team that computerized ticketing on India’s Railways in the 1980s.

Learn how Aadil had to get around hardware constraints, corruption, and software issues. In some ways everything was different about development 40 years ago, but in many respects things are exactly the same. Maybe not the part where a computer crash caused a riot that needed the national guard to put down.

If you want to go deep on how software can be a positive force for change, you won’t want to miss this one!
