Mistakes I Made Building Netflix for the iPhone

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

A funny thing happened last spring: Netflix let me build the front end for their iPhone product. Yeah. Me. The punk-rock-API guy.

The initial conversation went something like this:

Netflix: "It's five weeks to WWDC. We've got Mobile Safari, our open APIs, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."

Me: "Hit it."

LEVEL: Advanced
