Y'all probably remember me telling you about developing a MVC5-based project template that will allow us to more quickly get a foothold in a rewrite of our 20 web apps.

So I showed a preliminary video demo of the project template to a) the boss, and b) another interested dev, and it was well-received - the boss was really excited. The demo simply shows the user login stuff, and the home page presented by the template after the user is logged in. They asked a bunch of questions, and I provided answers they appeared to be okay with.

However, another dev is pushing back really hard because "you're just a contractor and your mandate is to maintain one app, not rewrite the entire suite". I had to point out (even though he already knew) that I did this on my own time - at home, and I was just showing a youtube video of what I was doing. Some devs are happy maintaining the status quo, even though they know - and have even vocalized - that the current suite is becoming impossible to maintain due to 12 years of patches being applied by dozens of developers.

After the argumentative dev left the room, the boss told me not to let the guy sway me from the path I was on.
