“Technical debt” is unavoidable.

Resp. to nderground — “How You Can Leverage Technical Debt & Why You Should”

Hi nderground,

There is no need to scale anything if you don’t have any product/market fit. My article focuses on hacking in the context of an early stage startup. At that stage, validating a product/market fit necessitates hacking, which might generate tech. debt. I most definitely agree with you that IF you must scale, than best practices must be fostered. As for your comment, “I see in this post the implication that experience people can’t hack. Well, fuck that.”, you misread my article.
