Moving 17 years of old legacy code and sites into the Cloud

Scott Hanselman has been blogging for 20 years and podcasting for 16 and largely on legacy hardware and operating systems. All of the stuff he’s been doing on the side and like many companies he's created a lot of technical debt. He discovered something very concerning about his hosting provider and decided to move into the cloud.


This technical talk will discuss the requirements analysis, and dozens of decision points that need to be made to move this into a sustainable future. We will discuss the complexities of moving legacy systems into the cloud, considering operating systems, platforms, open source code, testing, DevOps, and much more.
