Up to my Eyeballs in Technical Debt! @ WordPress DC
A few weeks ago, one of the organizers of the Washington D.C. WordPress meetup group reached out and asked if I’d be willing to speak while I’m in town for php[world]. Never one to pass up and opportunity to speak to new groups (to be fair, there was also mention of free pizza and beer), I happily accepted.
I’ll be giving my new Up to my Eyeballs in Technical Debt! talk, just days before it officially premieres at php[world]:
Every decision we make in our projects has the potential to increase or reduce technical debt. While the only way to completely eliminate the debt is to never write any code, there are steps that we as engineers, project managers, and project stakeholders can take to mitigate our risk.
This talk covers the concept of technical debt, its potential to devastate projects, and red flags that project teams can look for to reduce its impact before it spirals out of control.
If you’re in the greater D.C. area, please come out and join us at WordPress DC on Tuesday, November 22!
