Katharina Probst talks about the situations in which server-side scripting is a good solution for applications. She describes Netflix’s first approach, which uses Groovy scripts. She details how the scripts are uploaded and can make use of shared modules and then dives into a new approach that isolates the scripts into their own containers without compromising the original goals.
Katharina Probst is Engineering Manager at Netflix, where she leads the API team and helps bring Netflix streaming to millions of people around the world. Prior to joining Netflix, she was in the cloud computing team at Google, where she saw cloud computing from the provider side.
