Seminar mit Prof. Dr. Les Hatton: Safer C™: Developing in high-integrity and safety-critical systems

This 2-day course is about a safer and more reliable way of using the language C.

For engineers or engineering management in any high-integrity, business-critical or safety-critical area employing C. Number of delegates trained >6000 in 13 countries

Course Overview

In an IEEE Transactions paper published in April 2014, an analysis of 100 million lines of open source downloaded at random revealed that 85% was written in C, 7% in Java, 3% in C++, 2% in Ada and the remaining languages measured, just 3% between them.  Given that C strongly influenced both Java and C++, particularly in their failure modes, it is of real importance in practical engineering to understand how C works and more importantly how it fails, particularly with the enormous cost of failure, for example, in recent automotive recalls.

In view of the prominence of C in consumer electronic system development of all types today, this course presents a practical development philosophy based around the notion of safer subsets of C. Copious data is presented showing how real C systems fail, followed by detailed strategies to avoid these failures both at the language and the process level.

You should attend this course if:

  • You would like to improve your knowledge of how C works and fails in real systems
  • You would like a more rounded background in failure avoidance and its beneficial effects on productivity
  • You develop consumer electronic systems
