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