How did we port our code from Python two to three is less than two months with one dedicated developer while ongoing development? Find out and learn why SAS and microservices are your friends.

At the verge of 2019 our code base was running on our customer's site achieving tremendous value, while at the same time under extensive development, continuously growing and - written in Python 2. Our task was to port our code to Python 3 while maintaining our non-stop development and doing so in a tight timeline, with minimum development hours and customer impact.
What do you need to know to complete a successful and fast transition? We will share with you our strategies, plans and unexpected issues. We’ll talk about how Agile, SAS, CI\CD and Microservices play very nicely with the porting process. We will answer important questions such as how the team can keep developing during this process, estimate time and effort, and expect the unexpected, as well as minimize impact on customers. You will be interested to know what was the most painful, what where our pitfalls and what was surprisingly easy. At the end of this talk, you will be equipped for your journey towards the future.
