Lessons Learned at Niantic: How to Move Live Systems to a New Database Platform (Cloud Next '18)

In this session, hear from Niantic (creators of Pokémon GO) engineering leaders Mingliang Wei (Ming) and Niniane Wang on how they re-platformed live systems to Cloud Spanner. Skeptics originally asked, “Why introduce risk?” but became converted to supporters. Their use of a hypothesis-driven approach and risk-minimizing method has broad applications for all decision makers and practitioners in getting broad buy-in for technology changes.
