Slides from Tim Bozarth's (@timbozarth) QCon 2017 presentation (https://qconnewyork.com/ny2017/presentation/zero-production-ready-minutes)
The fabric of Netflix's approach to building new highly-available services is evolving. The Runtime Platform Team is focused on improving developer productivity while simultaneously making it simpler to build and maintain the high-availability services that Netflix expects. Starting with application generation, and leveraging a new approach to communication between services (RPC), we're simplifying what's needed to build a fast, reliable, and optimized service capable of delivering a fantastic customer experience.
We'll be sharing how Netflix is enabling engineers to go from "zero" to "production ready" in minutes - incorporating best-practices learned through years in the cloud. We will also share the story of transitioning from our home-grown RPC machinery to open-source standards, how we recognized when it was the right time to walk away from our own creations, and how our new approach is improving team velocity across Netflix engineering.
