👉 Go to On Exactitude in Technical Debt – O’Reilly
Good overview of how to think about technical debt.
Technical debt is not the cost of repaying the debt: it is the cost of owning the debt. These are not the same. That is the message of the technical debt metaphor: it is not simply a measure of the specific work needed to repay the debt; it is the additional time and effort added to all past, present, and future work that comes from having the debt in the first place.
Informative for those that need to manage this concept. Anyone writing software is managing this.
