> Andy will speak on technical debt and how to get out of it.
> Technical debt is that nasty condition companies get into
> where the codebase is crufty, poorly documented, and hard
> to test, and everyone is terrified of changing anything.
> "Just like financial debt, it's the compound interest on
> technical debt that snowballs until you can no longer
> manage," Andy writes. Come learn how to pay down your
> biggest debts before that happens.
