Of all the technical debt you can incur, the worst in my experience is bad names -- for database columns, variables, functions, etc. Fix those IMMEDIATELY before they metastasize all over your codebase and become extremely painful to fix later.. and they always do.

Right now I'm looking at the column "field_location_contrib_address_value" in the table "field_data_field_location_contrib_address".

Data modeling / Naming pro tip: Talk to a non technical person and jot down the nouns and adjectives they use when talking about your problem/data domain.
