Chris does a post-mortem of a recent outage at GoCardless during a PostgreSQL schema change, and gives practical advice on how to avoid it happening to you.

Further reading: Blog post from GoCardless, with a few extra tips.

Speaker note: At 2:00 I start my example off wrong. The example only uses a payments table, not a customers one.
