Running your own migration requires a bit of setup and boilerplate code, Drupal needs to know where to find the source data, and the Migrate module needs to be provided with some basic information about our custom code. In this lesson we'll look at setting up Drupal to be able to connect to multiple databases, and then create the skeleton of a simple module which will house our custom migration code and an implementation of hook_migrate_api(). Finally we'll create a base class from which we can begin writing our own custom migrations, and talk about why this is a good way to start organizing our migration.
