Title

Changing the Tupperware – How Legacy Changes Can be a Messy Business

Summary

The post would use Tupperware as a metaphor for data migration – changing “containers” means scraping messy substances out of one container and into another. Wil it go well? We could even say that to those who work with it, data can have almost a “textural” property (raw./incomplete/inconsistently formatted data) and then talk about having a data migration plan to avoid hand coding, etc.
