Livin’ on the edge at Netflix – Adrian Cole

Life on the edge is innovating a system that is ultimately responsible for 1/3 of all internet bandwidth usage in the US, and Adrian Cole is going to tell you how Netflix does it in his presentation from JAXConf 2013. This talk will look at a combination of services and open source projects that comprise the edge network, including Neflix Denominator. Discussions will include how Netflix deals with DNS, distributed load balancing as well as discovery of mid-tier services. You’ll understand which service components are involved with edge traffic management. After watching this video, you’ll have enough context to create your own life on the edge with NetflixOSS!

Agile Architecture and Design – Neal Ford

“There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things that we do not known we don’t know.” – From the poetry of Donald Rumsfeld In this presentation from JAXConf 2012, ThoughtWorks software architect Neal Ford investigates agile architecture and design, specifically addressing how big up-front architecture and design fail because of the unknown unknowns of a project.
