Discussion on: Accounting for Technical Debt

I'll probably write an article on my thoughts around actually paying down technical debt over the next few weeks - as well as some thoughts about communicating that debt to business in a way they can understand and make good decisions as a collective group.

I love these discussions, but I fear that the negative feelings in Mick's post are very common and I wonder what we can do as engineers to better expose, communicate, and solve these problems.

I'd love to see that article.

I agree about the negative feelings being very common ... in addition, if the developer is not strong (personality, not coding), they can get run-over by management. I've been there ...

Let me know when you get the article done and I'll add a link to this article.
