Technical Debt

Technical Debt is any technical issues slowing down the project due to hasty (short-sighted) decisions made at an earlier point.

All of us make bad decisions, but not fixing them and just differing them really leads to bigger problems as these issues have a snowball effect.

Technical debt can be introduced at various levels:

  • Code smells is the most obvious one,
  • But things like lack of (or poor) automation,
  • poor choice of tools,
  • fragility in the development environment
  • and so on

can also contribute to technical debt.
