Peril Architecture Deep Dive

By Orta Therox

For the last two years, we’ve used Peril to automate quite a lot of process at Artsy. You can see a full overview of what we automate in artsy/README. As a service, Peril is a bit of an iceberg of complexity, most tooling-y developers at Artsy have contributed to our user-land Dangerfiles but very few have touched the server itself.

To lower that barrier, I gave our Engineering team a run through of how the server works and how a lot of the pieces come together. Jump to YouTube for the video, or click more for a smaller inline preview.
