Django at Admiral

How an agile stack and lean mindset allowed us to scale from 0 to a successful product

Mathieu Dähne, Rhys Howells

Tuesday 18th, 12:00 (Assembly Room)


A talk (25 minutes)

This is the story of two years working inside Admiral to launch a new digital product, Veygo, from a 5 man team launching an MVP in 7 weeks to a successful company of 30+ people two years later.

We will tell you of the challenges we faced, how we solved them with a very agile (by corporate standards) tech stack: Django DjangoRest React React Native AWS EB CircleCI, and how we managed to keep the startup mindset focusing on the most important problems and continue iterating quickly on the product and shipping features efficiently.


  • The speaker suggested this session is suitable for new programmers.
