A New episode in our mini-series about R&D, in which we share the principles, culture and processes of the engineering department at monday.com.
In the middle of 2019 a decision was made to upgrade monday’s framework – Rails. To those of you that don’t understand what exactly is a framework, it’s sort of an upgrade to the platform – a process that demands a long preparation and entails many risks such as data loss, security breaches, and many other unwanted scenarios. When the R&D department decided to perform this upgrade, one thing was clear – if we’re going to do it, we’re going to do this with zero risks.
In this week’s episode, Darya Wertheim speaks with Eviathar Mossaffi, Senior Full Stack Lead, and Omer Doron, Staff Software Engineer at monday.com, who were in charge of the entire framework upgrade. They share what was the thinking process leading to this project, how to turn a risky process into an almost completely safe one, and what defense mechanisms they used to make sure the project was successful.
Before you listen, a small disclaimer – this episode dives deep into the R&D world, and it is very technical, so will be suited mostly to people working in this field.
