J.J. Pickle Research Campus
ROC 1.603
10100 Burnet Rd.
Austin, TX

This is the first talk in a two part series on Defensive Programming.

Achieving the correct results for even a moderately complex scientific computing problem may require billions or trillions of calculations,  which makes it impossible to check the calculations by hand.  This talk is about tips, techniques, and tools on how to make this task more manageable.

Topics to be discussed are:   

  • Effective tools for creating software
  • Discussion of Testing: Unit and System Testing
  • Design With Testing in Mind
  • DRY: Do not Repeat Yourself
  • Language Specific Defenses
  • Out of Bounds Errors
