Tickets server

A sample implementation hacked together in a couple of hours in Perl + MySQL of the Flickr tickets server, as explained in this blog post.


  • MySQL 5.1+ is installed locally, listening on localhost:3306
  • Perl 5.8+ is installed, along with DBI (apt-get install libdbi-perl)

How to use this

  • Basic sql schema is found in sql/tickets.sql
  • To test basic sanity, after setting up the db, run: prove -Ilib -v
  • To stress test the tickets db, run: perl bin/
