In my role we used to take on technical debt before the fact. We work with Java webservices and the majority of our infrastructure used to be Apache Tomcat / Spring / JSP-based deployments. As we started taking on greenfield projects we were pushing to move to newer technologies like Spring Boot, Thymeleaf, even Angular/React. Unfortunately because our team's experience was mostly in the "older" tech, we spent a while developing new applications using that stack.

It was only when a few us put our foot down and said "enough is enough" did we manage to start developing software using the new technologies which has, admittedly, made life entirely easier (deploying a containerized Spring Boot application vs. maintaining and deploying to a Tomcat instance on some random server somewhere).

Unfortunately the damage is done though for the earlier applications, and since we still have to develop and maintain those we're finding the development estimates for those to be much higher than our more recent applications. That's a technical debt we knew was coming, and now we have to live with.

(And I'm sure a few years down the line the technology we think is cutting-edge will become redundant and we'll be the old farts still clinging onto it bringing in technical debt for future generations!)
