Developer recommendations

Hello, can anyone recommend a developer that would be able to convert our old shopping cart to the new 2.X version?  I understand from reading some posts to this forum that its not going to bring over anything but the data, but I am the shopping cart owner and I have no skills at all for upgrading.  I would need someone capable of taking all from the current site and making it look and work similar on the new improved version.  Is there a developer that can be recommended for this type project?  Thank you, Mike

Re: Developer recommendations

Hello @mjmelect,



Before starting the actual migration process, consider the following recommendations:

  • Make a full backup of your Magento 1 store including all files, folders, and the database.
  • Create a clone of your Magento 1 store. Do not use the live store for Magento migration process.
  • Analyze your store. Keep what you think is necessary and delete the rest.
  • Check whether your current theme(s), extensions and custom code are compatible with the Magento 2.
  • Migrate the data from the cloned database of your Magento 1 store.
  • Remove outdated and useless data from the database. This includes logs, recently viewed products, compared products, etc.
  • To make Magento migration process as hassle-free as possible, install a fresh copy of Magento 2 on the same hosting server where your Magento 1 store is located.

If you've found one of my answers useful, please give "Kudos" or "Accept as Solution"

I'm a Magento 2 developer with more than 10 years of experience.
