Culture at Netflix

Awesome slide deck on the culture at Netflix and the definition of a culture without “politics.”

Thanks to Rob Hale  for brining this to my attention.

In particular – check out the slides on Talent Density and the obvious but often overlooked consequences of increasing processes (talent leaves).

async / await

So after finding out that this is something I should be familiar with during a recent user group meeting – I decided to check it out…

I really enjoyed this video – while it is highly technical and a bit dry – it left me with very few questions. This talk literally goes into what the compiled code will be, and what the CLR is going to do.

It is so exciting to see C# continue to evolve – and in ways that make our lives as programmers easier!
