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.

In your State Of The Union speech, you expressed a great deal of
concern for our ability to compete in the modern world.

Asian immigrants have the ability to “hit the deck running”.  As a
consequence, Asian Software engineers are hired preferentially and
Off-Shore program development is a thriving industry in the United
State.

My overall goal is to bring Software Engineering leadership back to the
United States.  We need to be able to “hit the deck running” better
than the Asians.

Specifically, I want to increase the opportunities for software
engineers to sell their services directly to the federal government as
home-based businesses.

I am semi-retired software engineer with 45 years experience. I
specialize in the economical development of error-free software. I have
been a home-based business since 1992 and prefer off-site fixed priced
projects.

To provide this service, I developed a personal development methodology
and a set of personal tools based on a hardware development analogy.
This methodology has enabled me to economically develop product in
strict compliance with principles of ISO-9001.

I believe that these tools have matured sufficiently to provide other
programmers with the potential of developing error-free software for
the government from their homes.

I, most likely, will need some adjustments to render my technology and
tools acceptable to the federal government. I will also need a core
team to assist me in this effort.

It is important to any client including the Federal Government that the
agreed-up methods of software development and test were faithfully
used.   My tool has the capability of certifying that the agreed-upon
code standards are exclusively used.

I still need to certify that the agree-upon test plan has been
satisfactorily performed; and there may be other certification
requirements. I will need access to a government software engineer
willing and able to assist me to “home-in” on the needs of the
associated agency.

The core team must consist of young, highly skilled programmers who are
capable and willing to work on a new software engineering approach.

I recommend that we perform the required research and development
activities on a community college campus.  Specifically, the optimal
team would be a professor and several students.

I am 73 years old. My health is good. None-the-less, time is of the
essence. To make my contribution, I need your help.  Will you help me?
