User interface

UIinterfaceweb interface
The user interface (UI), in the industrial design field of human–computer interaction, is the space where interactions between humans and machines occur. The goal of this interaction is to allow effective operation and control of the machine from the human end, whilst the machine simultaneously feeds back information that aids the operators' decision-making process. Examples of this broad concept of user interfaces include the interactive aspects of computer operating systems, hand tools, heavy machinery operator controls, and process controls. The design considerations applicable when creating user interfaces are related to or involve such disciplines as ergonomics and psychology.

As Netflix grew, the company began being noticed for its innovative management practices—the results of the culture Hastings was exploring—called “Freedom and Responsibility”. Netflix is known to pay salaries that are typically much higher than customary to attract the best talent, and is one of the few companies where employees can choose annually how much of their compensation they want in cash versus stock. Other innovations include their treatment of employees who don't meet expectations. “At most companies, average performers get an average raise,” says Hastings.
