In this Developer Productivity Engineering Meetup we will talk to Danny Thomas from the Netflix Productivity Engineering team. We’ll explore the people, processes, and tools that Netflix put in place to improve the productivity of their engineers with the ultimate goal of shipping higher quality content to subscribers faster.
