Don't Let Tech Debt Manage You

About the Course

Software is a big investment for most companies, organizations, and governments.  The quality of that software contributes heavily to its value.  Effectively managing technical debt enables you to optimize the value of software and maximize speed to market.  If you have to battle technical debt in an attempt to beat your competition to market with a new feature, you may lose any advantage by having to deal with complex or unreliable code that is not easily extensible.

To maintain business, market, and technological advantages, you must effectively manage technical debt incurred within all artifacts that define, implement, and validate your software.  This course examines what technical debt is, how it can benefit your organization and give you an advantage over your competition, how and when it should be (intentionally) incurred, and how and when it should be paid off.
