Going Node at Netflix
Time: TBD | Room: E-132
Netflix is transitioning it’s entire web UI stack from Java to Node.js. Throughout this process we have learned (sometimes the hard way) what works for us and might for others. We've built a highly optimized UI layer focused on modular UI components, localization and CSS/JS packaging. Node has enabled us to move quickly and fail fast. We'd like to share some of the lessons we've learned along the way.
