Presented at Airflow Summit 2021

As a follow up for, in this talk, we would like to share a happy ending story on how Scribd fully migrated its data platform to the cloud and Airflow 2.0.

We will talk about data validation tools and task trigger customizations the team built to smooth out the transition. We will share how we completed the Airflow 2.0 migration started with an unsupported MySQL version and metrics to prove why everyone should perform the upgrade. Lastly, we will discuss how large scale backfills (10 years worth of run) are managed and automated at Scribd.
