Martin Fowler generously invited me to contribute a new article to his website, Goto Fail, Heartbleed, and Unit Testing Culture.

Not only am I grateful to Martin for such an incredible opportunity, and for his editorial vision and guidance throughout the development of this article, but also to the many reviewers who’ve helped me improve it greatly thanks to their many corrections, suggestions, challenges, and insights.
