Show Notes:
  • Topic 1 - Great to finally have you on the show, we’ve been trying to get you on for several years. What are you working on these days?
  • Topic 2 - What is Netflix OSS these days? Is it a hiring movement, or a “maybe move off AWS movement”, or is it getting non-Netflix adoption?
  • Topic 3 - You used to work at IBM. What have you learned at Netflix (culture, process, etc.) that could be applied to non-Netflix companies?
  • Topic 4 - We’ve see some of the Netflix OSS tools getting embedded into the Container and PaaS platforms (e.g. circuit breaker, chaos monkey, etc.)
  • Topic 5 - You’re also working on containers platforms at Netflix. Containers are a big deal for many companies these days. What has Netflix learned that could be valuable to other companies?
