Technical debt slows down the ability of development teams to make changes in code, whether it's adding new features, or fixing issues. DevOps aims to remove hurdles from getting features deployed to production by standardizing and automating the delivery pipeline, and Agile processes aim to make the act of development itself more efficient and incremental. But, although both are necessary to be deliver business value faster, they are not sufficient where the code is carrying a lot of debt: development remains a bottleneck in that case. This talk will show how active management of technical debt can be incorporated into an Agile, DevOps workflow, by measuring debt as part of continuous integration, then using baselines and policies to prevent new debt being introduced and to manage down existing debt. It will be illustrated with demos that combine the capabilities of Visual Studio Online, Team Foundation Server, Visual Studio and SonarQube.
