Tips on Migrate your Current Apps to NodeJS

You have an existing web application or web app that is written in PHP, .Net, Java or may be in ASP?

It was written in that particular technology stack or tech. stack may be 5-10 years ago.
At that time, it was justifiable to use that particular tech. stack to develop the web app,
Now What ? Do you think those technologies will work in Today’s Era.?
Your Current Technology is Old ? Facing many Issues ?
Ready to migrate to NodeJS based Application ?

You need to consider a few things while doing migration. But, before that let’s understand Node a little bit.


Node is a JavaScript run-time environment based on Google’s V8 engine. In other words, with Node, you can now run JavaScript outside the web browser thanks to its original creator Rayn Dahl (and active contributors). Due to its asynchronous and non-blocking nature, Node is light-weight and fast. The initial version of Node was released in 2009 and based on modern computer architecture. It does not have old-legacy code or performance hack.
All-in-all Node is modern, fast, popular, and a platform that uses worlds’ most popular programming language JavaScript.


While doing migration and switching to Node involves some level of disruption. Following are the major points which need to be considered and it will make the transition as smooth as possible.
Resource Allocation:

You have a team dedicated to the project you want to migrate. They’re familiar with that technology and they may or may not be familiar with Node. In this case, They have to level-up their skills to JavaScript and Node. Identify the team members who need additional support for mentoring. Or it might be possible that you need to hire a remote team that dedicatedly works on migration to Node.
Start with Small Piece One at a Time:

Carefully scans the project and its components. Don’t directly choose the component or module of your project because it is mainly used or it is used by nobody. Choose the component that is a good fit for migration and easy enough to scale up once initialization is done. Be careful when assigning these initial transition tasks to developers. Assign a good team who can handle this transition smoothly. If transition happens smoothly in the early stage, it’ll give confidence to you and other team members.
Standardize the Process:

As the team moves forward with migration, standardize the process and create style guide or code documentation. This will ensure that the team is following best practices and not creating any complexity by going through their own set of rules because JavaScript is highly flexible.
Emphasize Practices:

Not just standard code guidelines but also give equal importance on best practices. This will ensure that the project will be scalable and maintainable for future modifications.


At the end, Node is positioned to be the most popular platform as companies become more interested in scalability and maintainability.
