Evaluating technical debt related to code structure at a fine-grained level of detail is feasible using static code metrics to identify troublesome areas of a software code base. However, estimating the interest payments at a similar level of detail is a manual process relying on developers to submit their estimates as they encounter instances of technical debt. We propose a framework that continuously estimates interest payments using code comprehension metrics produced by a tool that monitors… CONTINUE READING
