SPLASH will host a panel on Technical Debt chaired by Steven Fraser with panelists from Microsoft, Cisco, JP Morgan, SEI and CAST. The term “Technical Debt” was coined by Ward Cunningham in a 1992 OOPSLA experience report. The technical debt describes the trade-offs between delivering the most appropriate - albeit likely immature - product, in the shortest time possible. A debate will pit Shriram Krishnamurthi against James Noble on the issue of the rightful place of software in software conferences. Should software conferences insist on reproducibility of research results? And if so, at what price?
