The Technical Debt Trap

schedule Nov 30th 03:40 PM - 04:30 PM place Blue Room

Technical Debt has become a catch-all phrase for any code that needs to be re-worked. Much like refactoring has become a catch-all phrase for any activity that involves changing code. These fundamental misunderstandings and comfortable yet mis-applied metaphors have resulted in a plethora of poor decisions. What is technical debt? What is not technical debt? Why should we care? What is the cost of misunderstanding? What do we do about it?

Doc discusses the origins of the metaphor, what it means today, and how we properly identify and manage technical debt. In this talk I’ll share how these four principles power world-famous companies and how they can help you work with greater speed, simplicity, safety and success.
