Technical debt occurs when a design or construction approach is taken that's expedient in the short term, but increases complexity and cost in the long term. In this course, the concept of technical debt is examined from multiple perspectives, including how it manifests, accumulates, and impacts the software development organization. If managed well, some technical debt can accelerate design exploration. Left unrecognized and unmanaged, accumulated technical debt results in increased development and sustainment costs. This 1-day course presents approaches to assess the technical debt landscape and teaches mechanisms by which it can be intentionally managed. The course will examine the importance of intentional and strategic management of technical debt that is supported by architecture-focused practices, and foster dialogue between business and technical decision makers.
