Ariel consultants work with HBO’s Digital Products division building tools and technologies to support HBO’s flagship HBO GO, HBO NOW, and website media streaming platforms. Ariel provided Full-Stack Developers working with cutting-edge technologies on the PERN stack (PostgreSQL, Express, ReactJS/Redux and Node.JS). Ariel consultants developed a set of tools to facilitate on-boarding and off-boarding of new staff that automates and centralizes provisioning of Enterprise tools such as GitHub, WebStorm, Slack, VictorOps, YouTrack, BlueJeans, and Artifactory. Ariel consultants created a permissioning micro service to centralize authorization across internally-developed applications. Ariel consultants are working with HBO teams to develop a platform for capturing and reporting performance metrics that will be used to analyze service usage, detect outages, watch deployments and generate alerts. The platform uses custom analytics and leverages Grafana for visualizations. All applications are developed using an AWS-cloud based DevOps pipeline that enables rapid development of new applications with development, staging, and production instances all running in cloud-based Docker containers. 100% automated test coverage is maintained for every application and micro-service using a combination of unit tests (using mocha/chai/sinon) and feature-based integration tests (using CucumberJS/selenium/protractor). This approach (100% automated testing coverage, 100% DevOps automation from development to production) has drastically reduced HBO’s system administration costs, enabling HBO to focus more on developing compelling new user experiences.
