In 2017, Rachel Stephens (@rstephensme) of Redmonk wrote a great piece about how technical debt is an incomplete analogy. But she agrees that it shouldn't be abandoned. In this episode, she and I expound on the analogy to its breaking points, including liquidity, derivatives, and the perpetual state of refinancing we're all in.
For background notes, you can see my slides from my GlueCon 2019 talk, "Can we trade derivatives of technical debt?". I also recommend this webinar with Josh McKenty and Uli Homann on Debunking Myths about Cloud Portability for it's discussion of lock-in (and, essentially, liquidity).
Want to hear from folks like Discover, who "paid down" over 30k lines of tech debt (according to Dormain's definition)? Register for SpringOne Platform today and save an extra $200 with S1P200_DDREWITZ.
