by Tom Grant

A cursory description of the technical debt problem oversimplifies and overlooks many important details. For instance, the differences between technical debt and other kinds of debt, the different forms of intentional and unintentional technical debt, the specific coding sins that lead to technical debt, or the steps needed to both eliminate current debt and prevent future debt. On that last front, opinions vary widely, from "Run a static code analysis tool once in a while" to "Just don't write poor code." Fortunately, in this issue of Cutter IT Journal, we have many good articles that help flesh out these critical details.
