NFR's and Technical Debt...

Two reposts due to their interesting topic and unique content:
  1. Non-Functional Requirements, a minimal checklist at Leading Answers. This is a good checklist for any team to work with their product owner and cover all that "technical stuff" that insures the product's success or failure outside of its features. Some people call this the "-ilities" list.
  2. Using the Mikado Method to pay down Technical Debt. This is a good post that uncovers the typical lesson of refactoring the guts of a ball of mud. For every thing you fix, you find 10 more. The Mikado Method is a good way to plan out refactoring to avoid this problem.
