is there an inverse of technical debt? technical surplus???

technical surplus allows you to freely introduce bugs and bad design decisions while staying in the black

@cwebber I would think of technical surplus as creating an environment that enables experimentation/research without endangering production code?


@sivy @cwebber Surplus isn't really the opposite of debt though, investment is. Maybe technical investment is where you've built a design that allows you to maintain software at low cost and adapt to new situations easily.

Alternatively it's where you've built a codebase that maintains itself. Now you have a singularity.
