Presentation given at Agile 2013 in Nashville, TN on Technical Debt.

Title: "Technical Debt for the Non-Technical"

Description:
Demystify challenges in continuous software development by learning the importance of addressing Technical Debt. Hear real world examples and situations to relate the jargon filled technical world of software development to every day life using Technical Debt as a metaphor referring to the eventual consequences of poor or evolving software architecture and software development. Understand short term and long term impacts of uncompleted changes within a codebase, and most importantly, learn techniques on how to address it. Leave with a new perspective and ideas on how to explain it to others.
