Balancing Technical Debt and Clean Code and Open Data Talks

Balancing Technical Debt and Clean Code
Balancing technical debt and getting things done is one of the hardest problems we have. When should we write beautiful, elegant, clean code and when should we just hammer away blindly at the keyboard until it's done? This talk goes in to why this balance is so difficult and covers everything from estimations to refactoring and testing, with a focus on real world web apps.
By opening up data, governments increase transparency and create the opportunity for others to leverage it to solve problems through new applications and services. Tom and Jon will talk about how the south coast is getting behind and engaging with open data, and the work they've been doing to enable anyone to access it.
