In the fast-paced world of IT, the impact of coding issues and technical debt is well understood, but what about the often hidden and even more profound challenges arising from human interactions and team dynamics? Join us for a thought-provoking talk on "Social Debt," a concept that explores how the untold burdens of work pressure, lack of trust, and communication breakdowns within IT teams can severely hamper productivity, well-being, and code quality.
In this presentation, we will delve into the causes and consequences of social debt. The relationship between social debt and technical debt will be a central theme, highlighting how social issues can lead to technical challenges. We'll uncover how communication barriers and a lack of collaboration can hinder discussions on code quality and best practices.
Furthermore, we will provide actionable insights on how to identify, address, and ultimately repay social debt within your IT organization. Create the healthy, resilient and fun team you would like to work in.
