This collection includes presentations from the Second Workshop on Managing Technical Debt, which took place as part of the 33rd International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2011). The technical debt metaphor is gaining significant traction in the software development community as a way to understand and communicate about issues of intrinsic quality, value, and cost. The goal of this second workshop was to discuss the management of technical debt: to assess current practice in industry and to further refine a research agenda for software engineering in this area.
The workshop summary was published as Managing technical debt in software development: report on the 2nd international workshop on managing technical debt, held at ICSE 2011, ACM SIGSOFT Software Engineering Notes, Volume 36, Issue 5, September 2011, pages 33-35.
The proceedings are available in the ACM digital library.
