Doctor, Will My Drupal 7 Commerce Site Survive the Upgrade?

Commerce 2.x (the Drupal 8 version) has come a long way since last year. It's ready for production.
This wasn't the case when I migrated my Drupal 6 Ubercart site to Drupal 7...so I'm curious now, especially since upgrading from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 will be much easier.
- How hard is it to go from Commerce 1.x to Commerce 2.x?
- How far along has Commerce Migrate come?
- What is included in Commerce itself now?
- How do I port my custom functionality (and do I need to)?
I'm going to explore these questions and share my experiences.
To benefit the most from this session, you should have some development experience. Previous e-commerce and Migrate experience is a plus. A working understand of Drupal 8 and OOP concepts will also help.
You'll hopefully learn how to avoid making counterproductive architecture decisions while building your Commerce 2.x store and get a head start in understanding the concepts.
