Recently I had the discussion with a colleague on how new code was being added to a code-base without maintainability in mind. The discussion was sparked by a code-review that had been ping-ponging between the reviewer and the developer where readability and ( as a result ) maintainability was an issue.
Notes on the talk on Building Resilient Frontend Architecture by Monica Lent. In this wonderful talk, Monica cuts to the heart of core aspects of rewriting code and presents 3 strategies to increase the resiliency of frontend architecture. Why do we usually rewrite code? Inexperience, it’s fun, better solution available and (the big one 🥁) Technical debt 🎉. Monica’s definition of Technical debt: Code that negatively and repeatedly affects the speed or quality of delivery.
