Technical debt conference sessions

2:30pm–3:10pm Thursday, 07/19/2012
We will look into when it make sense to reduce technical debt, and when it does not.
11:50am–12:30pm Friday, 07/20/2012
Like many projects, OpenJDK has technical debt. OpenJDK, being an implementation of the Java platform, bears a greater burden: evolving the platform makes its own implementation go out of date. It's an enormous effort to keep the JDK up to date with Java. This talk examines this kind of technical debt in OpenJDK and presents some paths toward mitigating it.
