The Twitter Seminar On The Development of Error Free Software Continues — Session 2

HAS A MAJOR ERROR FREE SOFTWARE METHODOLOGY BEEN DEVELOPED?

The principles of simple-precedence produced one of the
best compilers that I have ever used.

Can the principles of simple-precedence be used in the
development of other applications?

Would you believe it if I told you that simple-precedence
has been used in a lot of different applications.

In 1973, IBM introduced the principles of structured
programming.

Strict Structured Programming satisfies the requirements
of simple-precedence.

Strict Structured Programming is a excellent means of
defining an error-free process.

Unfortunately, the management of data is different than
the management of a process.

WHATIFWE developed a simple-precedence means of managing
data? Can we do it?

The Twitter Seminar On The Development of Error Free Software Has Begun — Session 1

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?
