A database fetch. All rows at once. Not that many rows, maybe 50.
But oh boy when someone forgot that the repository is wired to magically inject SQL that joins other tables and does ineffective loops to create thousands of objects in the background.
Been fun finding memory hogs in the codebase.
I still pay for GSuite and the domain of my "startup" project that I have had shelved for well over two years now. Dammit.
Wanted to add a simple log entry when a model changes state in a certain way.

Leadership has decided we do only Django from now on if we do tailored software. My supressed rage when I just brought in tons of cash with not-Django tailored software.
How many big profitable companies got that big doing just one thing?1
Developers on the same team who use Windows. Web dev even with Vagrant becomes a pain in the ass for everyone else who need to be interoperable with the Windows ways.
People who willingly install and use development branch web browsers and then send inages of exploded websites when using said browsers.
