Proving Absence of Run-Time Errors in Software


Code review and testing can find bugs, but they alone cannot prove that the software is free from critical run-time bugs. Edsger Dijkstra, a pioneer in computer science, once said “program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence!”  Yet, many embedded projects interpret the absence of test failures as proof of quality. 

This webinar presents techniques that software development teams can adopt to make their software safe and prove the absence of bugs using Polyspace. See how you can find bugs in your code and, more importantly, prove that your code is free from critical run-time errors such as overflows, divide-by-zero, and buffer overflows.


  • Explore code review, testing, and static analysis
  • Prove your code is free from critical run-time errors
  • Learn how to make embedded software safe and secure

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
