The Inner Guts of Bitbucket

By on August 11, 2014

Recently our teammate and Bitbucket engineer Erik Van Zijst had the opportunity to present at Euro Python 2014 in Berlin. Check out this video of his session on the Inner Guts of Bitbucket and get a detailed overview of our current architecture at all layers from Gunicorn and Django to Celery and HAProxy to NFS.

In addition to the inside scoop into Bitbucket’s inner workings, this video covers some war stories and shows how we too have to learn things the hard way sometimes.

    “Sometimes we too have to learn the hard way”…? What you mean even brilliant, world-class and modest geniuses also have to learn the hard way?!

    Thanks for the presentation. Very interesting to see how Bitbucket works. What’s the reason for running real hardware instead of virtual machines?
