  • The topic of technical debt has gained significant attention from researchers in recent years since its management has significant impact of software development. Several studies that analyze technical debt evolution from different perspectives; however since most of these studies are done for Java very little is known about the evolution of technical debt in software ecosystems consisting of projects written in other languages. In this paper we run a study across nine Python open-source… CONTINUE READING
