So, the migration didn’t go without a hitch… in fact, there were many minor hitches. That said, we finished it off this eve, and everything looks good on the surface. Tomorrow will be the true test when the users try things out. The intended result is they won’t notice a thing – hopefully that’ll be the end result.
I’m tired, but not exhausted. This was one of the best migrations I’ve ever been involved with. My colleague Kwang spent a good chunk of his night assisting as well, and for that I’m grateful. I think I understand how shadowing pairs are configured, but I would like to know how many hits of acid the person who designed the management tool took before coding it.
Here’s hoping tomorrow (today) is uneventful, and that I’m on a plane Sat or Sun morning.
