Towards the end of last year James used that immortal phrase to convince me to help him develop a Django-based commercial product. The phrase 'MVP' was also bandied around without a hint of irony.
9 months and 4000 commits later we've managed to get our product to beta - largely through the power of late nights and having no social life of which to speak. It's still got a fair bit of Django Admin in there (although you wouldn't know it at first glance). It's also got a ton of Angular, a smattering of React and just enough jQuery to make an old-timer feel at home.
Come along and hear our horror stories and gaze in wonderment at our technical debt...
