Get out of (Technical) Debt

Why is it that so often, despite our best intentions, our codebase seems to get progressively more and more difficult to work with over time? In this talk, we'll look at the various ways that decisions we made in the past can slow down our progress in the future. We'll see some ways to measure the problem, how you can work with management and developers towards addressing the issue, and ways you can avoid getting too deep into "technical debt".
