“Code without tests is bad code. It doesn't matter how well written it is; it doesn't matter how pretty or object-oriented or well-encapsulated it is. With tests, we can change the behavior of our code quickly and verifiably. Without them, we really don't know if our code is getting better or worse.”
Michael Feathers, Working Effectively with Legacy Code

“Programming is the art of doing one thing at a time”
Michael Feathers, Working Effectively with Legacy Code

“Encapsulation is important, but the reason why it is important is more important. Encapsulation helps us reason about our code.”
Michael C. Feathers, Working Effectively with Legacy Code
