In the BBC’s Content Distribution Services division, they build and maintain systems that expose content metadata to be consumed by a wide range of audience-facing products. Their current architecture for distributing tagging metadata consists mainly of two JVM-based read and write APIs feeding off a Triplestore. This single storage setup for both read and write operations imposes restrictions on performance and scalability.
- Built simple components that are easy and quick to deploy.
- Used Typescript for static type-checking.
- Adopted input validation libraries like joi.
- Used docker-compose to orchestrate dependencies for acceptance testing.
- Took advantage of other tools and libraries like Bluebird, nsp, testdouble, etc.
