Project: AWS migration
Launch: February 2014
Role: Technical Consultant / QA
A project was initiated to move the entire printed.com platform from Rackspace to Amazon. On this project, a major part of my role was to share my knowledge of the platform, including locations of shared folders, third-party connections to the API and directly to the database, critical business services, cron jobs, user logins, the deployment process, server configurations, dependencies on tools and libraries, basically anything that would need to work in the new environment.
As Technical Consultant I provided all of this information to the Lead Software Engineers. I performed QA on the test environment during the setup of the new servers. Finally, I provided extensive support during the live deployment, which took up the majority of a weekend. I also performed live system QA and worked with the team to approve every test scenario on the list.
