Below is an updated set of slides from a webinar presented by IEEE Software and Boeing on how to identify and manage technical debt. The slides outline how business and product quality goals should affect the choice of approaches (and combinations of approaches) for managing technical debt. They also discuss a set of automated approaches based on static code analysis that are likely to spot problems in source code that have real impact on productivity and defect proneness.
And make sure you fill in this 5-minute survey on some common beliefs on Technical Debt: http://ow.ly/bKGM6
The results will be published on our website soon! (see http://www.technicaldebt.umbc.edu/ for more information)
