The Phenomenon of Technical Debt - The technical debt metaphor is gaining quite a bit of traction in the software development world. This term was coined by American Ward Cunningham in a report at the OOPSLA conference (Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications, an annual ACM research conference) in 1992; he said, "Shipping first time code is like going into debt.
