How technical debt made me laugh


#1

Me and my psychotherapist usually talk about emotional troubles caused by family and my work as software developer. In last weeks session, trying to explain some SHTF situation in my workplace, I ended with “…it’s only because we accumulated so much technical debt.”, then I excused “I’m sorry, didn’t want to be too technical…” and then asked her “…but do you know what I mean with ‘technical debt’?”

Without hesitation she answered “Yes, of course.”. I had to laugh. She told me that I was not the first one mentioning technical debt. I wonder what else she knows about our profession…
