Have you ever tried to upgrade your Open edX release, but postponed it after realizing how much work is required? Or maybe you manage multiple instances with different configurations and don’t have time to check each instance manually for potential errors before upgrading. In this talk, we will help you streamline and improve the upgrade process. After many migrations from Dogwood all the way to Hawthorn, we will share our tips and techniques for a smooth upgrade process. We will also cover topics like code drift, mass upgrades, and custom themes.
