Description

Technical Debt is one of the main reasons why software fails, we are used to thinking that it is just bad code. This talk proposes a bigger picture view of what it means in a Sustainable Software era, how can we identify bottlenecks that are generating more debt and then how to healthy deal with it.

We are used to thinking that Technical Debt is just bad/ugly code, with this talk I want to propose a bigger picture view of what we can call Technical Debt with a Sustainable Software era, how can we identify bottlenecks that are generating more debt and then how to deal with it.

After joined on a few ongoing projects as a developer I noticed a lot of smells for bottlenecks on the product development and delivery phases, those issues are usually named as Technical Debt issues by the development teams but not the healthy code is just a reflection of the teams’ struggles, when I say Teams I mean the entire companies’ structures and relations. Those relations can have a lot of problems and usually, those problems are only visible on the code written.
