Abstract: 

"Technical debt, if not managed properly, will have technical and economic implications on software projects as well as psychological impact on teams. Learn how to use simple Agile techniques and metrics to detect, control, and systematically reduce technical debt, thus boosting productivity and helping engineering teams focus on delivering business value."

The session aims to provide an overview of technical debt in software projects run using Scrum and walk the audience through suggested Agile techniques and metrics to detect, control, measure, and reduce technical debt. It will be an interactive session aiming to encourage an exchange of experiences from the audience.

The talk will encompass the following: Technical debt, its economic and psychological implications (the happiness factor); detecting technical debt throughout the SDLC; definition of done and debt prevention; techniques to control and reduce technical debt through Sprint planning.
