When you incur debt, the illusion of doing things faster can lead to exponential growth in the cost of maintaining software. Software debt takes five major forms: technical, quality, configuration management, design, and platform experience.

In todays rush to market, software debt is inevitable. And thats okay--if youre careful about the debt you incur, and if you quickly pay it back. In Managing Software Debt, leading Agile expert Chris Sterling shows how understanding software debt can help you move products to market faster, with a realistic plan for refactoring them based on experience. Writing for all Agile software professionals, Sterling explains why youre going into software debt whether you know it or not--and why the interest on that debt can bring projects to a standstill. Next, he thoroughly explains each form of software debt, showing how to plan for it intelligently and repay it successfully.

Youll learn why accepting software debt is not the same as deliberate sloppiness, and youll learn how to use the software debt concept to systematically improve architectural agility. Coverage includes Managing tensions between speed and perfection and recognizing that youll inevitably ship some not quite right codePlanning to minimize interest payments by paying debts quicklyBuilding architectures that respond to change and help enterprises run more smoothlyIncorporating emergent architecture concepts into daily activities, using Agile collaboration and refactoring techniquesDelivering code and other software internals that reduce the friction of future changeUsing early, automated testing to move past the break/fix mentalityScripting and streamlining both deployment and rollbackImplementing team configuration patterns and knowledge sharing approaches that make software debt easier to repayClearing away technical impediments in existing architecturesUsing the YAGNI (you aint gonna need it) approach to strip away unnecessary complexity Using this books techniques, senior software leadership can deliver more business value- managers can organize and support development teams more effectively- and teams and team members can improve their performance throughout the development lifecycle.
