Level Up: Quality, Security, and Safety

schedule Dec 12th 01:20 - 02:10 PM place Red Room people 294 Interested

Increasingly our software systems have to be right the first time. The costs of software failures can devastate companies and hinder governments. Security breaches can have societal impacts that can last years. Software is hard to design and implement. Let alone design and implement well. What can we do to be better at designing and delivering better, safer, and more secure software and systems? Does language choice, such as Java vs. C++ vs. C vs. Erlang matter in terms of producing better software? When does security become a quality concern? Will AI lead to better or worse software and systems? In this session, we will discuss lessons learned from, among other things, almost a decade of working on NASA software projects that had to work correctly or people could die. And how these lessons continue to impact the speaker's mindset and outlook daily.
