Writing my first webapp that I felt was good enough for public use was a beast. AngularJS is annoyingly over-complicated, IMHO.

Refactoring the entire thing and getting rid of AngularJS for the sake of speed (and simplicity in updating) was an even bigger beast to deal with, though calling the refactoring 'absolutely worth it' is an absolute understatement. It's less total code, and I know what ALL of it does and how.
