Deepak Kumar and myself hosted a session on the upgrade process at Convergence in Orlando. A big thank you to everyone who attended; we are truly humbled by the great feedback we are receiving for our session. An even bigger round of applause is due to Paul Langowski from Tectura, who joined us on stage to give testimony on two "double-leap" upgrades he has worked on.

For those of you who wasn't able to attend, I've attached the slide deck to this post.

Here is the excerpt of the session:
