Resources for learning Magento 2 and migrating a Magento 1.9 site to 2.2?

Resources for learning Magento 2 and migrating a Magento 1.9 site to 2.2?

What are some good resources for learning Magento 2 and migrating a Magento 1.9.0.1 site to a Magento 2 site?

 

This Magento 1.9 site is quite old and has a lot of custom written functionality in it. I currently have the 1.9 site running on my local machine via XAMPP.

 

Is there a way to just create a directory for Magento 2, db for Magento 2, and basically dump a lot of my Magento 1 assets into it or something and test it? Is there some kind of upgrade or migration tool?

 

Thank you.

Hi @aregowe,

 

I will try to help with some directions (but I guess there isn't an unique answer or solution).

 

Maybe of the the best way to start is to ask and try to help into the forums. Also you'll find information on StackExchange and you can start diving into the http://devdocs.magento.com/

 

There is a Data Migration Tool that you can explore: https://github.com/magento/data-migration-tool


Another recomendation could be to be aware of Magento issues on Github: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues (if you are technical, of course).

 

Also, there are/were some projects to help with the code migration:

 

(I don't have experience with those tools so I can provide honest feedback)

 

Fianlly, you'll need to get your hands dirty with the platform.
