Software Engineering Institute
Technical debt is a metaphor that software developers and managers increasingly use to communicate key tradeoffs related to release and quality issues. The Managing Technical Debt workshop series has, since 2010, brought together practitioners and researchers to discuss and define issues related to technical debt and how they can be studied. This collection includes presentations on practical experience with technical debt and approaches to evaluate and manage technical debt.
The workshop summary was published as Technical Debt: Beyond Definition to Understanding Report on the Sixth International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt, ACM SIGSOFT Software Engineering Notes, Volume 40, Issue 2, March 2015, pages 32-34.
The proceedings are available at IEEE Xplore.
