Exchange on premises migration to office 365

Hello Experts,

Can someone please summarize and indicate high level steps to migrate an Exchange 0rganization [2007/2010/2013] to Office 365?

My understanding, is that we have to setup federation services, send/receive connectors to allow email , install AD directory synchronization tool in all domain controllers for password synchronization, and so on

Please provide all high level steps from your previous experience and some links with tons of screenshots for each phase? i.e Federation, Exchange, AD, and so on

Your feedback is highly appreciated

In summary a hybrid deployment involves.

1.  Signing up for Tenant in Office 365 and adding your domain to the Office 365 Tenant.
2.  Installing, Configuring and Testing ADFS (proxies, certificates, load balancers and domain migration to federated domain).
3.  Activating Active Directory Synchronization.
4.  Installing and configuring the WAAD service and synchronization account.
5.  Verifying Active Directory Synchronization.
6.  Enabling Hybrid mode on your Exchange Server(s).
7.  Configuration of your external DNS records.
8.  Enabling the Mailbox Replication Service Proxy.
9.  Moving Mailboxes to Exchange Online (Office 365).
