5: Programming Languages in 2015 with Dion Almaer

I didn’t plan on doing a 2015 retrospective of any sort, but then Swift was open sourced and I realized that this year was amazing for evolution of mainstream programming languages. Join Dion Almaer and me for a conversation about programming language evolution in 2015 as we talk about Swift, Rust, Go, JavaScript, ClojureScript, PHP, Perl 6, Java, Kotlin and more.

4: DevEx and the Netflix cloud with Sangeeta Narayanan

Few internet companies operate on the scale of Netflix (this is a mathematical certainty with respect to bandwidth, given that Netflix accounts for almost 37% of all traffic). To make that work, Netflix relies on a host of microservices built and managed by their many developers.

In this episode, I spoke with Sangeeta Narayanan, engineering manager of Edge Developer Experience at Netflix. Her team works on the developer experience with respect to the API that all Netflix apps talk to. Our conversation covered a range of topics around how Netflix is able to maintain a reliable and fast service. As part of that, we touched upon a number of open source projects that Netflix has released that can help you manage your own cloud services.
