Backward Compatibility Vs Technical Debt

WordPress logo

Here’s an interesting explanation of the “Eternal Struggle” between Technical Debt and Backward Compatibility (in a WordPress context) from WP CLI maintainer, Alain Schlesser.

I’ve embedded this video from WordPress TV using WordPress 5.0, the Twenty Nineteen Theme, and Gutenberg as the editor. I enjoyed this talk, and agreed the hell out of most of it, so am posting it here for you to enjoy.

I'm Robin Scott, a WordPress and WooCommerce expert who, along with three other people, runs a business called Silicon Dales Ltd remotely, from a base in the North West of the UK (kind of near Manchester!). I enjoy using my talents for programming to track and interpret sporting, political or retail data - and therefore you'll see me posting some content in these spaces in this, my personal website. If you're interested to talk about leveraging this for your business (in sport, entertainment, retail, etc) please contact me.
