Transparently Deleting (and Restoring) a Production Database at GitLab

Transparently Deleting (and Restoring) a Production Database atĀ GitLab

At the end of January 2017, we accidentally deleted the production database for GitLab.com. This presentation focuses on how we communicated with our users to make this mistake as transparent as possible.

This was presented in April 2017 for the Colorado State University ACM meetup.
