I talk with Anand Sharma of Gyroscope about how they have built their "personal dashboard for your life". They use React Native and have one of the first few React Native-based iOS apps in the App Store.

In this episode, I spoke with Sangeeta Narayanan, engineering manager of Edge Developer Experience at Netflix. Her team works on the developer experience with respect to the API that all Netflix apps talk to. Our conversation covered a range of topics around how Netflix is able to maintain a reliable and fast service. As part of that, we touched upon a number of open source projects that Netflix has released that can help you manage your own cloud services.
