We completed our first Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 upgrade

We just upgraded one of our Drupal 7 websites to Drupal 8 in our first major version migration experience. It was a friendly and seamless experience. We did not need any extra tool other than the migration tools in Drupal core. We migrated the content with the tools, created a new Drupal 8 theme, recreated the views (views are not migrated) and that was it!

But what if you started manually and now you want to switch over to Composer? Hop on the link and get the info on this.
