  • Abstract

    Technical debt is a term that conceptualizes the tradeoff between the short-term benefits of rapid delivery and the long-term value of developing a software system that is easy to evolve, modify, repair, and sustain.

The goal of this project is to develop a suite of tools and techniques for detecting and visualizing technical debt and provide exemplar data sets.
