Speaker - Trent Willis, Senior UI Engineer at Netflix

Abstract - Many millions of people around the world are familiar with Netflix’s feature-rich and reliable video streaming applications, but most of them probably don’t realize that underneath that shiny exterior lies a complicated world of internal tools and applications. And, if all goes well, they will never need to know it exists.

In this talk, we’re going to take a peek into this world. We’ll learn about a few of the internal products that keep Netflix running smoothly, see what life is like for engineers working on those products, and understand the pros and cons of working on internal products instead of customer facing products.

Speaker Bio - Trent Willis is a Senior UI Engineer at Netflix, where he builds tools and applications to give other engineers insight into their products. Additionally, Trent is a regular conference speaker, project lead for the open source QUnit JavaScript testing framework, and a self-professed music junkie.
