An interesting article on tech debt.
I can’t really sum the article up because I fear I would be lacking 80% of the important parts and misrepresenting the other 80%.
Well, you get the idea, right?!?
Just for future me, who will maybe smile at me but not be too harsh anyway:
The metaphor works only if you really understand debt is a tool and, as any tool, can be used for good (/profitable) reasons or to be seriously wounded.
Going down to 0 debt is most probably a waste of resources, much like premature optimization is the root of all evils.
Your gut feeling is anyway right: we’re paying too little tech debt and this does not help at many levels.
I hope you will enjoy the article as much as I did!
