Up to My Eyeballs in Technical Debt!

By Steve Grunwell

In this era of “move fast and break things,” organizations often fail to consider the long-term costs of decisions made for short-term gains. When projects cut corners, lack documentation and/or tests, and are regularly changing it’s not uncommon for them to quickly become too expensive to maintain or, at the very least, technical pits of despair.
