This week, Joe and Jordan discuss a common topic found in software engineering: technical debt.
While some engineers might consider dealing with it right away a verity of software development, others perhaps think it best to work around it and build around infrastructure what's already in place.
Is there a middle ground?
Further, how do you deal with technical debt regardless of your stance? What are some lessons learned? How do you advocate for time to fix it within your organization?
We'll take a look at some first hand examples of technical debt we've introduced ourselves in Buffer, what we did to fix it and how we addressed existing technical debt. Along the way, we'll see how technical debt is really all about your mindset - everyone has it, and you've got to respect the code that came before you while thinking about how to create a sustainable path forward with the work that you do day in and day out.
This is our last episode of season 1 of the Buffer Overflow podcast. We will return in 2020 with some exciting guests from Buffer's engineering team!
