Putting the customer first is a prerequisite for any successful service - especially in the competitive world of #videostreaming.

In episode 2 of #In Conversation With… , Ramon Duivenvoorden, 24i's CCO explains the Customer-Centric principles to 24i's product development and the crucial role #microservices play in providing Video Service Providers with flexibility and mass customization.  

  1. Don’t get too obsessed with one particular technology or toolset.
  2. Build apps as a collection of customizable micro-services for immediate flexibility.
  3. Avoid code branching as it creates an exponential increase in complexity.
