3M :: Deal or No Deal Game Technical Project Management

Whilst working at Saatchis I was responsible for Technical Project Management of a half finished Database-driven Flash project that they had commenced for the Post It brand of 3M. The project was an emulation of the Successful Deal or No Deal TV programme. Cash prizes were available and thus additional security measures had to be implemented both within the flash-based content, the phone and on the server via an SSL certificate. Other challenges included the localisation of content, IP address restrictions and load balancing.
