Review of Programmatic Technical Debt Analysis
- Monday, November 9, 2020 from 3:10pm to 4:00pm
Software development is highly dynamic. Project requirements change, developers change, and the industry as a whole changes. To continue fast development while maintaining high quality code, developers need to be able to identify and fix Technical Debt (TD). TD is typically caused by developers taking shortcuts during development and TD increases the cost of maintenance. Programmatic TD measurement and analysis tools help find and communicate TD issues. This report discusses five papers that exemplify many of the main concerns with programmatic TD analysis. Those concerns are: how to identify TD, how important is it to fix TD, how correct are the current TD measurement and analysis tools, and how will these tools adapt to changes in the industry?
