How To Handle Migrations

There is term called "promotion-driven development" where software engineers propose big refactors and migrations to look good but don't fully follow through. This is especially common in Big Tech. This lesson will teach you:

  • How to do code migrations properly
  • How to judge the quality of a codebase based off of its consistency and how "good, modern code" can actually be harmful to the health of the codebase overall
  • The mental and operating model behind how new engineers code, which is especially important if you're a tech lead (never forget this!)
