Andrew Fong shares lessons and best practices for data migrations learned from this experience. You’ll learn about how to plan migrations, durability and verification, and how to prevent burnout of the team during such events.
Andrew Fong is an engineering director at Dropbox, where he is responsible for the Development Infrastructure Platform. In the past, he was responsible for storage, telemetry, and production systems. Previously, he was an SRE at YouTube and AOL.
