It so happens that in a few of the apps I work on here in Netflix we use Jersey libraries inside a Tomcat container. As such I use the JSR annotations a lot safe in the knowledge that Jersey will take care of all the plumbing work and deal with routing and serialization/deserialization so I […]
Sailing in Santa Cruz — woohoo!!!
So proud to be part of this — and so grateful for such an amazing amazing party! The passport to this exclusive party: The freebies: And the amazing party: The VIP welcome: The amazing city views: and a “Black Mirror” special shoot 🙂 Special thanks to Russel Peters and Maz Jobrani who were hi-la-rious!!!
If you read some of my posts dealing with dependency injection in Java you have probably figured it out (and I even stated it in clear) that I use Netflix Governator’s a lot. Especially as I revealed in one of my previous posts because Google Guice doesn’t support out of the box the likes of […]
I’ve stepped into the Guice territory rather recently — coming from the Spring framework side of things — and I guess I had so far a similar love/hate experience as with Spring. I rely mostly on the javax.annotation standards anyway so to a certain degree whether it’s Spring or Guice I guess doesn’t make that much […]
First of all please notice the title of this post: Engineering Marketing — and not Marketing Engineering! (I do work currently in Ads Engineering in Netflix, which deals as you would expect with Marketing Engineering, in other words engineering solutions to support our digital marketing efforts.) Point being that this post is about marketing engineering […]
I recently had the chance to reflect over how important jargon can be when building a product and I thought I’d share my thoughts and findings here. A bit of history: a while back (quite a while back now) I helped a small startup (let’s call them Green Media) which operated in digital marketing and online […]
I read recently Shubheksha‘s blog post “A Beginner’s Very Bumpy Journey Through The World of Open Source” which describes her initial journeys into the open source world and reminded me a bit of some of my initial adventures into open source. (I even wrote a blog post ages ago — my goodness, literally ages ago […]
This quarter Netflix spoiled us with a party themed “The Crown”, following the success of this original series. Apart from the British theme of the decor (noticed the Big Ben?) and the dances we have been spoiled with all the UK classic food — as well as some classic British tunes (Spice Girls, yay!). Photos […]
At the end of another tough week in Netflix I look back at what I have achieved and what has been challenging in achieving it. I do wonder what I do looks like from the outside and I can’t really see how someone would make sense of my job. I sit in front of 3 (sometimes more!) […]
I been using node.js for a while now, and I do like it. I think I am still to make up my mind as to I consider this a solid production environment or it’s just a great tool for scripting and getting prototype off the ground — but even so, I definitely see its place in […]
Netflix spoiled us again with another party in the campus today woohoo
I just saw this the other day on LinkedIn — a set of 2 job openings targeted at me. Nothing unusual, LinkedIn does a good job at targeting jobs at their users (it is in fact due to LinkedIn I ended up at Netflix, via a very similar targeted job ad). However, there is something […]
Never a dull moment in Netflix:
