    Monetizing the Technical Debt
    By Vikas Hazrati, 30 March 2010

    Most Agile teams recognize the evils associated with technical debt. Just like a financial debt, the technical debt incurs interest payments. These are paid in the form of extra effort required to maintain and enhance the software which has either decayed or is built on a shaky foundation.



    Assessing the Single Responsibility Principle with LCOM4 with Sonar 2.0
    By Stuart Gunter, 26 March 2010

    A while ago I mentioned that I’d set up Sonar as part of our continuous integration system here at G3. Every time I use it, I’m amazed at what a fantastic system it is. It’s incredible that such a seemingly small piece of software can be of such great value!

    Using Credit Limits to Constrain “Development on Margin”
    By Israel Gat, 1 March 2010
