BOF: Upgrading Sakai CLE from 2.6+ to 2.9 without going insane

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

9:00am to 9:45am (PST)

Stanford just upgraded from Sakai CLE 2.6 to 2.9. We also migrated hundreds of local customizations including new features, locally built tools, UX improvements and tweaks, and SIS integrations. We'll discuss our experiences and pain points. Hopefully it will be an opportunity for all to learn how to do an upgrade while managing a massive number of local customizations.
