OK, so I got down to the end of the article, expecting to see some kind of conclusion, but there wasn't one.

So why did he bother to write it?

On topic, however, WTE has technical debt got to do with code quality?

If an application has the most perfect, creative, and beautifully designed code, that doesn't mean that there isn't still "stuff to do", and "stuff to do differently, now that we've thought about it some more".

But that's the other problem with the article: it doesn't start by defining what it means by "code quality", so leaves the reader hanging, and then it later more-or-less "undefines" code quality, and uses that "undefinition" as an excuse to reach no conclusions.

I think the guy should spend a bit more time on "article quality", before picking fault with other people's work.
