I sat down with Jem Young, Senior Software Engineer at Netflix. Jem also teaches programming and is co-host of a podcast called the Front End Happy Hour. We dive into all sorts of topics and really get into some great topics towards the end of the show. We discuss what it's like to work at Netflix, the millions of users that he directly affects each day, how to stay motivated and mentally healthy while working a desk job, and many other topics.
We dive into so many topics on this episode, here are a few:
- Front End Happy Hour
- What his job entails and why Netflix is such a forward thinking company
- A/B Testing
- Developer advocates
- How he incorporates fitness into his weekly routine
- Staying healthy to avoid mental burnout and solve complex problems
...and a plethora of great quotes.
