Netflix HQ just moved down the street from where I live. I heard great things about working there and I don't know how many times I read the Netflix culture power point for inspiration. I guess I will check back.
If you have any insight about working at the LA office, I'm all ears. Say hello to your web hosting guys though! I joke of course.

    1) Windows user 2) IE/edge user 3) picture of monitor instead of screenshot > send to phone. I don't think you'd fit in at Netflix let alone any real company.

      @neokolor #3 is a fail. It's harder to do that than just take a snap with phone and post on blind.

      @mx_clear edge is the default. But IE still ships as a part of windows. It probably will forever.

      Yeah could take a screen shot with my phone but wasn't sure how long the site will be down so I acted. Whatevs, you guys can both eat my ass, alright (Office Space reference, or is that too old for you?)

      I dunno for a quick thing like this taking a screenshot and send it it to the phone to attach to the post is much more of a hassle than just the screenshot directly with the dedicated button in the compose area

      Using IE is still pretty gnarly though

      Definitely IE. Chrome experience is very poor over ICA protocol and extremely poor on any type of roaming environments. From the sounds of it you guys are all devs so you really wouldn't know and I wouldn't hold it against you :) I'm definitely a windows person because that's what my job entails. I have only used Linux for dev classes in college. Anyways, some of us have to learn and deal with the MS and make this world a better place. Not everyone has the luxury of Linux heaven in "real companies" as the LinkedIn person pointed out below. It's amazing how some people can be such assholes behind the veil of the internet.

    Regarding #3 above: Consider the steps. Screen shot, transfer the screen shot to my Virtual desktop or configure outlook locally (since I pretty much use my laptop as a thin client) or use some webmail ridiculousness, email it to my self, wait for the email to propagate over an inordinate number of hops through the Internet, download and save the pic to camera roll, open blindapp, post to topic - dude some of us are working while blogging, ain't nobody got time for that. You guys can read it just fine as it seems from your overly descriptive analysis. Oh no, an imperfect world! Somebody posted a picture of their monitor! Give me a break ladies.

      Don't worry, many devs are assholes :) People on Twitter yell at me when I use Edge instead of Chrome for screenshot :) Honestly, I like the way Edge looks and functions, I just use Chrome for dev tools and profiles. Similar to political world, Republicans vs Democrats, Windows vs Rest

    Only a Windows person? Good luck. Your best bet would be MSFT

      @DumpTrumps - poor comeback for the entire 30 minute smoke break you just took. Basically no novel idea. Still riding the previous fail.

      @Djangoo so I guess in this case once you go black, you don't go back because you're deeper in a pile of shitberry and you really can't go back.
      I would sleep with lumbergh before someone can force me to use a berry.

      @Djangoo: Your noob attempt at reverse psychology doesn't work. MSFT has been missing the boat every year for the last 20 years. Even with all those billions you still make 3rd rate products.

      Lol, way to be an insecure moron. I asked because I worked there as an intern back in the heydays. Also, if they've been missing the boat for 20yrs, how are they still growing? Take your head out of your ass and try to write some code once in a while that doesn't run on shitty Java ME, lmfao.

      That's cause you have customers who are either stupid or cheap. Who needs Java ME when there is Swift?

    What's wrong with using Windows? Edge is pretty good too.

    When you zoom back out of the application layer, virtualization, software defined storage and networking, Wan acceleration devices, firewalls, switches and routers are all built from some flavor of Linux. How deep are you guys into Linux. Aren't you just coding in APIs also or are you doing kernel modification? I'm also really not looking for a coding position. I'm an infrastructure/cloud engineer.

    I am in Datacenter operations now and would like a similar role

      What's a datacenter? We use the cloud. I'm pretty sure it's just APIs all the way down.
      Aug 31, 2017
    • New LanMan
      OP
      Yes all the same. The Datacenters that I manage is distributed across the nation but its all our own hardware. My company provides similar IAAS as AWS and Azure. I know you guys use AWS. So I'm thinking the best fit for me is the team that handles the backend server deployment, redundancy, optimization and security.

      Keep on fighting the good fight. I do not believe in the singular browser market. If there is a place for Chrome, there shall be a place for IE.

    @mx_clear: OS does default to Edge but I was answering your question regarding "installing IE". But actually come to think of it, if it didn't come with it, I would want to install IE. Edge support is not very good in the CRM space and a lot of websites are still rewriting their code to detect and adjust to Edge because most companies develop and test with IE first and the other browsers come as an after thought. That's just truth...
