Don't Feed the Bugzilla - Squash (Heisen) Bugs Before Release - Klaas van Gend, Vector Fabrics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Almost all programmers have experienced Heisenbugs: bugs that only sometimes appear, but always disappear
when using a debugger or printf statements.
Also: in open source projects Heisenbugs are usually very hard to squash. The few users who experience them firsthand often do not have the knowledge to help the developers hunting them down.
Over the years, several tools have been developed to address bugs, including static analysis tools and
dynamic analysis tools. But not every tool fits every type of bug or every environment. And no tool finds all.

In this talk, Klaas van Gend showcases various types of bugs, multiple approaches to finding bugs and
the technology behind various bug hunting tools. Klaas also talks about his own experiences hunting bugs.
In the end, every developer wants to find all relevant issues before the next release!
