Changing applications from one technology to another can turn out to be rather very challenging depending on the type of tech stack. If you’ve ever migrated a large project then you can only imagine how daunting it could be, most especially moving from DOM manipulation stack to a Virtual DOM stack.
Recently after becoming Front End Engineering Team lead at BCaster I introduced an incremental migration shift from JQuery to VueJs. It sure did seem to be straightforward at first especially with proper test coverage, however 20% -25% into this migration we encountered a certain issues which meant re-evaluation of several architectural decisions that had been made in this regard.
