Podcast Episode 66 – Testing Debt

Hello and welcome to episode 66 of the Testing Peers podcast.

This week we have a special guest Ugne Litvinaite who joins, David, Russell and Chris as we discuss Testing debt.

Before we delve into the main subject we first explore our favourite Dinosaurs.

Chris explains what we mean by debt and references back to a blog he wrote in 2020 “It’s all just a little bit of history repeating…” and the different types of debt: culture, document, shortcut, later, and process debt. He also quotes from Abraham Lincon “Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most”

The Peers move on to discuss intentional vs unintentional debt, discipline, good habits, biases and predisposition to new shiny things before we move to talk about Ugne’s gut.

We go on to talk about the debt we’ve seen and dealt with sharing some of our past experiences.

We hope you found the discussion useful and would love to hear your feedback.
