Q&A: GitLab empowers DevOps while making CISOs happy

Technical debt and the cloud: The key steps to repaying your development deficit

Source – cloudcomputing-news.net Opinion Many years ago, I compared the concept of technical debt to a mismanaged baseball team. The baseball team in question spent untold millions on ageing veterans, rather than home-grown talent that could take them into the future.

The obvious result of this lack of foresight is the gathering of overwhelming technical debt.
