One thing that every application has is technical debt. We’ve all seen the skeleton’s in the closet (and may have even hid some in there), but at some point the crows come to visit and in order for the business to move forward we have to clean-up some of the accumulated debt.

As well as, how to implement practices around your engineering practice that can help alleviate you of future debt accumulation.
