Talk: Technical Debt

Technical debt is like inviting your friends for dinner. After the evening you have a lot of dishes to clean. If you don't clean them right away, you will have so much more work to do in the morning. Every time you release a feature, you have dishes to clean.

Speaker: Michal Simon

After Michal finished university, he bought a plane ticket, flew to Silicon Valley and looked for a job. After a year as a developer in a startup, he came back and started his own business to help developers deliver better code faster.
