THE TWITTER SEMINAR ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ERROR FREE SOFTWARE HAS BEGUN

September 24, 2013

HAS A MAJOR ERROR FREE SOFTWARE APPLICATION BEEN DEVELOPED?

When was the last time that a computer error created a real
problem for you?

An ATM failure occurred when I was transferring $1000. It took
the bank 5 hours to find it.

Have you heard that the development of error-free software was
economically unachievable?

Would you believe it if I told you that a major error-free
application was developed in 1968.

IBM developed the PL/1 compiler in 1968. It was error-free.
Unlike Fortran, it had no bug list.

How did IBM do it?  They developed it in strict compliance
with the principles of simple-precedence.

WHATIFWE developed other applications in strict compliance
with principles of simple-precedence?  Can we do it?

With the right development program, you can develop Error
Free Software.

There are some historical examples of this truth.

In the early 1960’s, Fortran was a major computing languages.

The Fortran compiler had a never ending bug list.

PL/1, the next major language, was far more reliable.

I used it at Lockheed for over five years and never encountered
any errors.

PL/I was designed in strict compliance with the principles of
simple precedence.
