agile code rot investment value

Great article on code rot

Build it, maintain it, or it becomes irrelevant and unmaintainable. A link to an excellent (highly technical) blog

OK, this is waaay more technical than most of the things that I reference, and I apologize to those of you who are innocently reading along, expecting my usual software engineering from the management perspective entries and links.

…but this is really good. Read the gist of it; if you are involved in software, you really ought to know: code rot is real, challenging, and is all about unmaintained and unreleased code.

Thanks to Bruce Rennie for pointing this out at work.
