Over 6 months I built out a distributed DNS service around the world consisting of 11 nodes, whilst at the same time trying to keep it under the radar of the wife - costing less than $1000/yr. I'll talk about how I built it, what tools I used (RethinkDB, Beanstalkd, CollectD, Python etc), the problems I faced, details I learnt about how other "budget" anycast services are built and the fun I had along the way.
