Room A

Thursday from 10:50 AM til 11:40 AM

The technical debt metaphor is gaining significant traction in the agile development community as a way to understand and communicate those issues related to accepting bad programming practices in order to achieve fast results (e.g a deadline). However, the idea of getting fast results becomes an illusion, since the cost of building software increases over the time.

In order to achieve a good technical debt management, agile methodologies suggest to measure it and add an specific entry in the sprint backlog to fix it incrementally and to apply continuous inspection to block new code quality issues. In this session, we will explore the different categories of technical debt and how can we benefit from Git workflow to reduce part of it incrementally and safely.
