Technical Debt: why it is crippling you and what to do
Comments are closed.
Interesting talk, maybe spread the analogy to personal financial debt a little bit more.
Got me thinking! But I missed some personal introduction (the personal financial analogy was nice though). The new insights like good debt were interesting, but for me there was a lot of obvious stuff.
Good talk. Interesting to hear about good debt...
Interesting content. Maybe you could lighten it up by using some more examples?
Good talk, escpecially for the uncon track. Learnt a lot and the discussion afterwards was enlightning :)
I enjoyed the talk, because I like the topic and I like the passionate way you addressed it. Quite nice to be reminded of how useful value objects can be!
I have a suggestion regarding the structure of your talk:
The solutions part of your talk contained three elements: separation of concerns, method extraction and value objects. These are not all of the same order. Separation of concerns is a general principle whereas method extraction and the use of value objects are more concrete solutions for specific problems that can exist in code and can be part of technical debt.
I would advise to choose a more coherent set of pillars for the talk. Either go for a more philosophical talk (talk about separation of concerns, modular vs connected architecture, trusting on framework vs pure OOP etc. etc.) or go for a more concrete talk (talk about three useful refactoring strategies for tackling technical debt).
In any case, I think some more code examples and actual usecases could save you a lot of explaining.
Final point of feedback, I think you can spend less time introducing and explaining the problem and get to the heroes of your talk sooner.
