Hey Ben glad you like the content.
I order to migrate from Bitcoin QT you’ll need to find a file called “wallet.dat” – that’s where your private key is stored. Here’s a guide on how to do that.
Once you have the private key you can import it to another wallet – depending on which wallet you choose the import process with vary.
