Speaker: Susheel Aroskar

Software Engineer @Netflix

Susheel works as a software engineer on the Cloud Gateway team at Netflix, which develops and operates Zuul - an API gateway that fronts all of the Netflix cloud traffic and handles more than 100 billion requests a day. Prior to Zuul, Susheel worked on Netflix CDN's control plane in the cloud, which is responsible for steering more than a third of all North American peak evening internet traffic. He started at Netflix just as Netflix was taking its first steps towards migrating from datacenter to cloud and he still has scars from those early days to prove it.

How do different forces affect the building of high-performing teams.
