When writing software, destruction can be just as valuable as creation. Learn how to catch bugs and break software as you discover different testing methods that will help you build better software.
Lesson 1: Domains, Ranges, Oracles, and Kinds of TestingHow to think about the different elements of software testing
Lesson 2: Code CoverageHow to find parts of a program that need more testing
Lesson 3: Random TestingHow to automatically generate test cases that break code in unexpected ways
Lesson 4: Advanced Random TestingHow to engineer a sophisticated random test case generator
Lesson 5: ConsequencesHow to deal with lots of bugs, how to take a big input that triggers a bug and make it smaller, how to report a bug, and more! ###Lesson 6: Conclusion
- John Regehr - John Regehr is a computer science professor at the University of Utah. His research is on making software fail and on making software that fails less often. Lately, he is obsessed with compiler bugs and integer overflow problems.
Udacity is a for-profit educational organization founded by Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, and Mike Sokolsky offering massive open online courses (MOOCs).
