Migrating Convox Gen 1 applications to Gen 2

For those who are unfamiliar with Convox (, it’s basically basically Heroku for your AWS account. It takes all those amazing aws services and exposes them via an easy to use CLI tool. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an easy to use deployment strategy for applications built to use Docker. Recently Convox went live with what is being called their “Generation 2” application stack. While gen 2 offers many improvements over gen 1, unfortunately there is no inline-upgrade path.
