LEVEL UP! Migrating your ZF1 app to ZF2

The big bang approach is the easy way, but it is not really applicable for large applications. I would have been happy to see both ways explained : strangler and big bang.

Overall some good information. Obviously this should have been a way longer session, but I feel confident in going forward with migration.

Nice and practical talk. Though some of the guys who weren't aware of the ZF2 components might have had problems following all the "new" things emerging with ZF2.

Great talk, great impulse toward migrating but surely shows the only visible part of the iceberg as far as larger applications are concerned. That might takes months during which you concentrate on re-developing the exact same application so with no visible nor immediate benefice... May ZF3 be delivered with retro-compatibility...

Great talk, with good advices on migrating simple ZF1 projects to ZF2.
Need another talk on good practices for migrating larger projects from ZF1 to ZF2.

It was not "Migrating your ZF1 app to ZF2"

No real solutions for "strangled" way
- no real solutions for parallel operation of ZF1 and ZF2
- no real solutions to migrate forms (complex custom decorators, complex validation)
- no solution for reusing of zf1 modules in zf2 projects (gracefull migration)

On the other side "The Big Bang" way explained very good - how one should re-write his ZF1 web applications from scratch.

It should be called not "Migrating your ZF1 app to ZF2", but "ZF2 Crash course for ZF1 developers"

Great presentation about 'The Big Bang' way. The problem is that this is not applicable in a real situation.
Would love to hear/read more about the step by step for:
- parallel operations for ZF1 and ZF2
- complex form migrations
- reusing code from ZF1

very well structured step-by-step information about migration. Thank you for sharing your experience.
