High Velocity Migration

High Velocity Migration from Joshua Hoffman on Vimeo.

Eén van de presentaties die me het meeste is bijgebleven tijdens Velocity, is die van Joshua Hoffman, engineer bij Sound Cloud. Hij had het over de migratie van 1200 servers op een tijdspanne van 6u bij zijn toenmalige fictieve bedrijf “Hipster” (lees: Tumblr). Het plan van aanpak, de issues die hij en zijn team daarbij overwonnen, de learnings, … zijn allen meer dan de moeite waard om te bekijken.

Enkele weggevers?

  • Premature optimization is the root of all evel
  • Ingredients for (insane) growth:
    • Pay off technical debts
    • You need heroes
    • Find and kill zombies
    • Embrace imperfection
    • Take shortcuts
    • Beware of green fields
    • Be a constant gardener
