comment How do “custom software companies” deal with technical debt?
+1 Thanks for the through answer S.Robins. I guess the main point I was trying to make is that, if you build something for the short-term goal a sale, but you're not prepared to support that product over time, then you've incurred technical debt, since every time that products needs support, you, as a company, won't be prepared, and then you'll have to take members of the main product team to fix something which noone is paying for anymore.

comment Why are interfaces useful?
hear hear! Interfaces were invented to solve other problems, such as polymorphism. However, for me, they come into their own when implementing a Dependency Injection pattern.
