[WayBack] Tech Debt (by MonkeyUser: Software development satire) is one of the best images on Tech Debt I ever encoutered (via[WayBack] Tech Debt by @ismonkeyuser https://www.monkeyuser.com/2018/tech-debt – ThisIsWhyICode – Google+):

Technical debt: “taking shortcuts leads to long-term bleeding…”

From a while ago:

Just tried to explain technical debt: “taking shortcuts leads to long-term bleeding.”

The Spilled Juice Analogy for Technical Debt | Disciplined Agile 2.X

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/21

Interesting take on Technical Debt: [WayBackThe Spilled Juice Analogy for Technical Debt | Disciplined Agile 2.X

Not just because of the analogy, but also because of this comment by Ramu Iyer:

Conway’s Law states that software (or the structure of an IT system) mimics and is isomorphic to the organizational-social structure around it. In layman’s terms, a poorly designed software system is a vivid indicator of the underlying pattern of team communication, coordination and cooperation in the software team. Oftentimes, strained social and organizational interactions get in the way of smooth software development and operation. This results in social liabilities during intergroup coordination and accumulates “social debt” within or across one or more communities in a (software) organization. Any suboptimal socio-technical decisions also impact the technical debt of a software system in tandem. Digging one’s “way out of the technical debt pit” also requires the proactive mitigation of social debt around a system.

Technical Debt – Dilbert Comic Strip on 2017-01-03 | Dilbert by Scott Adams

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/03

Is it funny because it so true? Would it be funnier if it weren’t true?

  • Boss: Did you finish the software yet?
  • Dilbert: No, I’m still paying off the technical debt from the last programmer you rushed.
  • Boss: I don’t know what that means.
  • Dilbert: Well, that explains a lot.

Extreme Programming, a Reflection (via: 8th Light)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/29

Thanks Uncle Bob Martin for posting this.

I’ve been trying (with increasing success: it takes time to get this all right) to practice XP (through various name changes) as much and wide as possible since almost 14 years, and only the last few years it is starting to be common practice for many more people.

take a moment to reflect back on 1999. A time when Kent Beck wrote a ground-breaking book. A book that changed everything. Look back and remember: Extreme Programming; and recognize it as the core of what we, today, simply think of as:

Good Software Practice.
