Can a Flex application support 500,000 users?

Well, at we're going to find out pretty soon as we're pretty close to launching the next generation exchange games trading platform to over 1 million registered customers. If you're attending MAX Barcelona check out Manny Correia's presentation on Tuesday 16th October at 16:00 where you'll get a chance to see a demo of this application.

If you're based in the US make sure you don't miss this session as this may be your only chance. The recent (somewhat misleadingly named) US Port Security Act prevents non-US based gambling companies, including, from trading in the US. This act is so at odds with the existing free trade agreements that even the World Trade Organization has ruled against the US. In other cases similar WTO rulings have resulted in severe economic sanctions against the offending country.
