Great article...One thing it does not address is those in charge of the project not really allowing for time in dealing with the technical debt.
Needless to say, as most projects of this size and age, this one has plenty of technical debt. Let's make an inventory.

"Are your CRM plugins creating technical debt?" https://crmbusiness.wordpress.com/2015/07/10/are-your-crm-plugins-creating-technical-debt/ #crm #feedly

Well said...I to have seen this, and it's a frustrating talk to clean up. One of the harder aspects is convincing others of the need... because no matter how many facts/articles/etc you throw at them if they have not had to deal with maintaining complex plugin logic for a period of time they sometime just don't see it...once they do it's too late.
The image above is from the article DEALING WITH TECHNICAL DEBT, which I recommend you read, right after reading this one :-) The common method of creating plugins in the CRM projects I have worked...

After I fed my daughter breakfast this morning, she saw me eating my cereal and wanted my breakfast too! She proceeded to shared my bowel of cereal and ate more than I did! As I ate the last bite she became upset and attempted to pull my food out of my mouth by sticking her entire hand in and pulling it out to put in her mouth. Think she wants more?

I don't think its fair for little kids to have to learn; Mother = Mom (fair) / Father = Dad (unfair). Should it be Dather? Dother? hum... well English is confusing! #teachingkidstotalk

Keep in mind that the word father (From old Norse faðir as far back as the 16th century) is totally unrelated to da. The words mom/mommy are variants of the baby talk syllable ma. The same is true for dad/daddy. So the word for mama and dada are literally the first easiest syllables a child learns to say. Interestingly, I know of at least one country where mama is the father. Others include baba and papa and even one that to most American English speakers would sound like thatha.

Story
Tagline
More is better than less because if ... there's more less stuff you might want to have some more but your parents won't let you because there is only a little. We want more we want more, we really like it we want more!
Introduction



I grew up in the small town of Placerville Ca. with my wonderful family. After I graduated from El Dorado Adventist School in 2002 I moved to Butte MT. I went to college there (1 Semester), before realizing there was something missing. I joined the Army as an Automated Logistics Specialist in 2003. A rewarding experience that while stressful, aggravating and a pain at times; I would not change it for the world. I learned so much and grew even more as a person and a friend. During my time in the service, I meet my beautiful wife. We live in Mass, with our wonderful Chocolate Lab Mocha.

Just finished my Masters in Information Systems (MIS). I love learning, and have always been fascinated with problem solving. Which could be one of the many reasons I was drawn to software development as it allows an outlet for my incessant desire to solve problems (some of which I create).

Bragging rights
Completed my MIS program (a 2 year program) in 14 months, with a 3.84 GPA, while working full time.
