Netflix has posted the WebKit UI for TV Devices talk from OSCON 2011 on the Netflix Tech Blog, and it give a lot of insight into the design behind Netflix's UI and how they support hundreds of different Netflix-ready devices.
We recently spoke at OSCON 2011 about how Netflix develops these user interfaces. We talked about:
- How we use web technologies to support rapid innovation
- How we architect our UIs to enable vast variation
- Strategies to improve performance and take advantage of game consoles’ muscle while still running well on limited hardware
We wanted to share our learnings with a broader audience, so we've posted our slide deck. Hopefully, you'll find it interesting, or (better yet) useful.
Here's the presentation as posted on Slideshare:
