Good to hear that.

Do not hesitate to ask the community for help should that be necessary. =)

If possible, please share publicly some information on what were the
steps taken to perform the migration; what were the easy parts, what
were the difficulties; the upsides and downsides of the process. Any
information that assists future migrators and/or developers in
facilitating the migration process is valuable.
