This disturbing phenomenon is growing in popularity.
It's time we talk about it.

Delivering software without bothering about its impact.

It's widespread in "agile" projects.

I'm calling it:

Bullshipped (n).
Rushed releases from previous years that didn't move the needle, yet we don't discuss or remove from the product.

Congrats! You have more stuff to maintain, support, and learn during onboarding.

It may be fantastic that you hit that date again.
But you didn't learn anything.

What's the benefit is that agility if all you've achieved is neater, faster crap.

I can't be the only one noticing this?

PS. Feel free to borrow this term and the image. Wouldn't mind a little credit when you do ;)
