Great article about Software Engineering by the creator of the Storm processor:

He talks about how production use exposes our software to unexpected input spaces and helps us harden the software (building up its immune system). There is no shortcut for this.

  • uncertainty about your specs
  • uncertainty about your implementation
  • uncertainty about your dependencies
  • uncertainty about your inputs
