Two thoughts about maintainable software

I really enjoyed the most recent episode of Robby Russell’s podcast “Maintainable”, in which Glenn Vanderburg1 talks about capturing explanations about code and systems, along with managing technical debt. It’s a great episode, and I highly recommend pouring it into your ears using whatever software you use to gather pods.

The whole thing is good, but there were two specific points brought up fairly early in their conversation that got me thinking. What a great excuse to write a post here, and make me feel less guilty about potentially never publishing the Squirrel Simulator 2000 post I had promised.

I know; I’m sorry. Anyway, here’s some tangible words instead of that tease. Enjoy!
