On this talk, you'll see the challenges we had at OLX Brazil to replace a 15 years old C TCP Service, with lots of memory leaks, using a large legacy database and also unsuitable for maintenance. The new Elixir Microservice had to come without service interruption, so there were also rollout challenges with all client platforms like mobile, web, and even mass insertion. Also, we created a CQRS approach to deal with Ad lifecycle events and preserve Ad state.
