Technical Debt

Matt Heusser posted some excellent thoughts on Technical Debt to his blog; my boss forwarded one of his articles to our department today. (I recommend starting with article I.)

Developers are people, and people tend to act in their own best interests. If management rewards developers for writing quick-and-dirty code and punishes them for taking the time to produce quality software, guess what will happen.

And I love his comments on entropy….
