This is a surprisingly controversial topic. In this episode, we share why we write down migration methods, and it's probably not the reason you're thinking of.

  • (00:00) - Is writing down migration methods just a weird habit?
  • (02:30) - A deploy that goes horribly wrong immediately
  • (03:45) - Rolling forward due to database engine limitations
  • (05:00) - How long is too long to rollback?
  • (06:30) - Another use case: switching branches
  • (08:30) - A mental unit test for your logic
  • (12:35) - Silly bit

No call to action on this episode, just go enjoy some quiet time to yourself.
