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. Our goal for this eighth workshop on Managing Technical Debt is to bring together leading software maintenance researchers and practitioners for the purpose of exploring theoretical and practical techniques that quantify principal and interest.
The workshop summary was published as Technical Debt: A Research Roadmap Report on the Eighth Workshop on Managing Technical Debt (MTD 2016), ACM SIGSOFT Software Engineering Notes, Volume 42, Issue 1, January 2017, pages 28-31.
The proceedings are available at IEEE Xplore.
