Do you have an idea you would like to build? We did too. After experiencing some developer pain from using the existing cloud management tools, we couldn’t hold ourselves from building a solution. This story is about two guys in the garage getting it done. Making a new developer productivity app called Commandeer available for everyone to use. As engineers, we have all the skills at our disposal to build and ship a software product. And we can make it available to the world with our bare hands without a large amount of capital or any advertising. So, what holds you back from building your idea today?

When I started at Joymode almost a year and a half ago, I was brought on as their first strictly front-end developer tasked with updating their front-end stack. Within a year, we went form a slow CoffeeScript/jQuery app on Rails, to a modern decoupled Vue app on the JAMstack. My talk goes into the motivations for migrating, my push for using Vue when the team had already convinced themselves prior to using React, and the strategies to progressively move over a large legacy codebase to a modern framework while still running a business. Finally, I can reflect on what went well and what didn't.
