You are designing an Azure DevOps strategy for your company's development team.
You suspect that the team's productivity is low due to accumulate technical debt.
You need to recommend a metric to assess the amount of the team's technical debt.
What should you recommend?
Technical Debt is the estimated cost to fix code elements issues.
Technical Debt Ratio: Ratio between the cost to develop the software and the cost to fix it. The Technical Debt Ratio formula is:
Remediation cost / Development cost
Which can be restated as:
Remediation cost / (Cost to develop 1 line of code * Number of lines of code)
