tech debt is a b!+ch you can only pay if your client somehow approves the budget for something they will never notice.

    Tech dept is inevitable if your project isn't trivial.
    You can only try hard to keep it somewhat contained by avoiding pulling in third-party stuff you don't have to and refactoring the shit out of the code base whenever you touch anything.

    @Oktokolo and documenting as you go! Don’t forget that one.

    Real documentation just not gonna happen. We all know that.
    Sparingly sprinkled comments in the code explaining why some odd-looking code is as it is is all we can ever hope for. If we are lucky.

    Add a couple of sleep(4) calls around your code. You can pay off the techdebt when the client notices the app is too slow ;)
