Start now

If you have some technical debt, an architecture issue, an old bug, or just some poorly developed features, now is the right moment to start changing. And I’m all pragmatic about it. No motivational stuff.

I’m talking about real problems which hold you back, waste time and money. Not about small optimizations which don’t bring you value, not every problem needs a solution.

To start doesn’t necessarily mean to actually do or to rush, you can start analyzing the need and the effort, think of required steps (technical analysis, people analysis, business requirements and so on).

Then start refactoring that old class or make a new one, maybe extract that feature into a microservice, upgrade that server, change that old technology, rethink that architecture so you can change easier in the future.

You know your business, but get fresh ideas from other people, maybe you’re too stiffed after many years on the project.

Just start the process now, because later everything will require more and more resources.
