Software engineers: Small things make a big difference.
Here are a few “small things” that can unknowingly create major problems:
Cut some corners, rush some code out the door, don’t write any tests. It’ll catch up to you sooner than you think. Cutting corners creates bugs. Those bugs? They’re going to turn up late at night or over the weekend. They’ll push out your deadlines. And now you’re rushed. So you write more bad (and probably un-tested) code on top of your already bad code. And the vicious cycle repeats itself.
A few easy ways to avoid all this technical debt:
Some technical debt is simply unavoidable, but it’s up to you to constantly be paying it off. If you don’t stay on top of it, it’ll overrun you. Stay fast and agile and always be refactoring.
