Technical Debt Resources

Brad Appleton has posted a great article on technical debt with lots of links to further resources on the subject. If you’re struggling with an aging code base and your managers just don’t understand why you can’t produce features as fast as you used to or at the same quality as before, then direct them to specific resources after reading this blog post. Using ‘debt’ as a metaphor is perfect for the cruft that inevitably finds its way into our code when talking to non-technical types.

Refactor early and often to avoid accumulating technical debt to the point that it cripples you!
