But our app still runs fine! Why do we need to upgrade?

It might seem alright, but there could be important security updates that might impact your customers and reputation. Not only can we help replace your old version of Node.js for the latest version, but we can also help you unlock performance improvements from newer versions.

Our developers are used to Node 10... Why mess with a good thing?

Change is hard, but we can help get your developers up to speed with newer versions of Node. As we rebase your changes into the Node upgrade branch, we will flag out of date code and notify your developers in order to resolve conflicts.

We don't have tests in my project...

Well, that is a real problem. We can't upgrade your Node application if you don't have a decent test suite. We require clients to have at least 50% test coverage in their applications unless they have a dedicated QA team. We use the test suite to check expected behavior for current code. We can help you write your test suite, but that's a totally different service. If you're interested, send us a message using the OmbuLabs contact form.

I don't know what my test coverage is... How can I calculate that metric?

Well, we are glad you asked. You can easily calculate it by using Istanbul. Here is a tutorial on how to use it.

How much will it cost/How long will it take?

An upgrade can take anywhere from a few days to over a year depending on a range of factors. The only way to even estimate it is to go through your codebase and node_modules directory. Yes, down the rabbit hole! Our minimum engagement for new projects is about $24,000 or about four weeks of work for one of our senior software engineers.

We know it’s hard to assess what’s required in terms of allocated development time or the budget for outsourcing. Let us help you.
