About the Speaker:

Christos KalantzisChristos Kalantzis (@chriskalan), Engineering Manager at Netflix

"A Tech enthusiast at heart, I try to focus my efforts in creating technology that enhances our lives. This is achieved by using resources more efficiently and reducing complexity.

I have lead teams at YouSendIt and Netflix using this philosophy, which has lead to the scaling out of persistence layers, the creation of a cloud file system and the adoption of Apache Cassandra as a scalable and highly available data solution."
