Technical Debt - The code monster in everyone's closet

Nina Zakharenko

Audience level:
Best Practices & Patterns


Technical debt is the code monster hiding in everyone's closet. If you ignore it, it will terrorize you at night. To banish it and re-gain your productivity, you'll need to face it head on.


I've worked at many institutions with many programming languages over the past 8 years They all have technical debt. Putting on a band-aid and ignoring the real issues can be disastrous. We'll go through several case studies, review big red flags, and learn how to start chipping away at the problem with confidence.
