This is my presentation from the Business of APIs Conference in SF, held by Mashery (http://www.apiconference.com).
This talk talks briefly about the history of the Netflix API, then goes into three main categories of scaling:
1. Using the cloud to scale in size and internationally
2. Using Webkit to scale application development in parallel to the flexibility afforded by the API
3. Redesigning the API to improve performance and to downscale the infrastructure as the system scales
When viewing these slides, please note that they are almost entirely image-based, so I have added notes for each slide to detail the talking points.
