4 Ways I beat the Professional Plateau

  • This application, if we ever got it to work, would be unmaintainable, because of the current codebase. It was just appalling. Maybe it was the engineers, may be it was our lack of anything sane in the product management department. It was probably everything. But this was just not done.
  • With our current skill-set, I needed to handle this problem. Otherwise, there was no way we could do the demo in 10 days!
  • Figure out Django and Python
  • Rewrite our entire app and UI from scratch
  • Make it demo ready for the prospective client in 10 days.
  • Oh yes! and there were three of us. 2 engineers fresh out of college and me, not a full-time developer or even a l33t developer!
