As a warm up for Transport Ticketing Global London event, we are happy to organise this first London Open transport Meetup dedicated to Open solutions for transportation ticketing and payment.
We are looking forward to seeing you in London on Monday 27 January at 7:00 pm at The London Connectory (160 Old street)!
As usual, the meetup will take place in two stages (4 to 5 presentations which will be followed by a networking cocktail-dinner to have time to meet and talk together).
Is Open Source an answer to Transport Operator’s needs ?
Paulo Barreto, Product Manager, Calypso Networks Association (CNA)
Before joining CNA, Paulo Barreto worked for OTLIS (the PTO consortium responsible for the ticketing system in Lisbon), and was in charge of, among other things, embedded development of the API that all integrators have to integrate with in the Lisbon System. Based on his experience, he will share issues commonly faced by TO regarding managing multiple integrators and the path from having multiple APIs to a single one, which influence the current roadmap of the development of Eclipse Keyple.
The future of Ticketing Interoperability
Christian Senly, Principal Solutions Architect, Cubic
There is a general trend for openness: open APIs, open Payment, open Transit Token, … for good reasons. Providing seamless ticketing user experience while achieving the interoperability and security that are pivotal to large urban mobility solutions require such openness. Opensource SDKs and Keyple in particular play well in this direction. » More information: https://www.cubic.com/solutions/transportation
