ComputerToucher1772306dSolving technical debt doesn’t bring in revenue. Only incurring more technical debt by agreeing to build everything any anything that one customer who hasn’t even paid a dime or signed an agreement asked for.
Which if you think about it, lines up quite well with the funding model of some of these companies: incur massive amounts of debt from investors to grow at all costs, pump up the valuation to ridiculous numbers and dazzle dazzle the market with shiny Press Releases whilst doing nothing about the raging dumpster fire that is a burned out, probably pissed off workforce.
It all makes sense when you stop trying to make it make sense
