comment How can I convince management to deal with technical debt?
"I take it you have never been involved in a project to re-write/replace or even upgrade and existing system" - Wrong, 7 years of it.

comment How to most effectively debug code?
Just shows you, all the books in the world on software design, testing and good communication and a lot of the products you work on are a sprawling mess. Despite knowing what's right, stress and unrealistic deadlines (in the face on your already messed up code) are the reasons behind why the code is in the state it is. I don't have any answers to it myself, I'm pretty distinguished in the office as a moaning face ****** as I kick and scream to keep code healthy and the development process smooth, but sometimes the team doesn't bond well together.

@JuliaHayward - This is very often the case, but in your situation, your clients may be satisfied with the functionality and not be too concerned with what's going on under the hood. The problem starts to surface when the client comes back asking for extra features and you need to add another enhancements such as making your app multilingual, mobile compliant blah blah, you start to look at what you have and see all the cracks in the wall.
