Python at Netflix

Episode #421, published Sun, Jul 2, 2023, recorded Thu, Jun 8, 2023

When you think of Netflix (as a technology company), you probably imagine them as cloud innovators. They were one of the first companies to go all-in on a massive scale for cloud computing as well as throwing that pesky chaos monkey into the servers. But they have become a hive of amazing Python activity. From their CDN, demand predictions and failover, security, machine learning, executable notebooks and lots more, the Python at play is super interesting. On this episode, we have Zoran Simic and Amjith Ramanujam on the show to give us this rare inside look.
