Would love to see that migrate script even in raw form. Can u post to github?

I have some clean up to do and some documentation to write on it but I should be able to get to it soon and will post it here plus tweet it out once its done.


I have posted our final slides to this node as well as linked them up on our website. Please download and enjoy!
