We'll be having 2 presentations this month from Ed Nicholson and der.hans.

Ed Nicholson - Technical Debts and Digital Assets


Description
Exploring the analogy of debt and real world financial obligations, as
a context for a software's or system's life cycle.
Debt and Software are both fundamentally types of Intangible Assets.
This talk is an exploration of how the much older asset class, Debt,
may be usefully applied in understanding the relative newcomers,
Software and Systems.
