When I became the tech lead, I inherited a product code base that was over a decade old, which also meant I inherited over a decade worth of technical debt and “spaghetti” code. I oversaw and helped on numerous projects to pay off tech debt but one project that stood out among the others. This project removed close to 8,000 lines of duplicated code and made it much more efficient to write code in this particular area.
