Hey there everyone,

As mentioned a while ago, I thought the initial questions posted by 
Bruno was really something I think a lot of people struggle with and 
even stops them from migrating.

The tips and suggestions a lot of you posted on the list really was 
insightful and helpful and I wanted to tuen it into an article so that 
even more people can benefit from it, post more tips and suggestins and 
ask more questions.

It is now done and live, 
please let me know what you think and feel free to contribute further.

Kind Regards,
