Good Code Can Be Easily Deleted: Tips on Dealing with Technical Debt

This week I got to sit down with Robby Russell on the Maintainable Podcast to chat about technical debt: what it is, how to avoid it, and how to get rid of it when you’re already knee deep in it. I feel that there were a few ideas I didn’t say very elegantly (doing a live podcast is hard!), so I thought I’d do a follow up post to clarify. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to the episode yet, I recommend you do that first before continuing to read.
