The Ninth International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt will be held in conjunction with XP 2017 in Cologne, Germany, on May 22, 2017.
Technical debt is a metaphor that software developers and managers increasingly use to communicate key tradeoffs related to release and quality issues. The Managing Technical Debt workshop series has, since 2010, brought together practitioners and researchers to discuss and define issues related to technical debt and how they can be studied. Workshop participants reiterate the usefulness of the concept each year, share emerging practices used in software development organizations, and emphasize the need for more research and better means for sharing emerging practices and results.
The Ninth Workshop on Managing Technical Debt will bring together leading software researchers and practitioners, especially from the area of iterative and agile software development, for the purpose of exploring theoretical and practical techniques that quantify technical debt.
The following topics are aligned with our theme:
- techniques and tools for managing technical debt in agile, DevOps, and other software development environments
- techniques and tools for calculating technical debt principal and interest
- technical debt in code, design, architecture, and development and delivery infrastructure
- measurements and metrics for technical debt
- empirical studies on technical debt evaluations
