Software Analysis & Testing

Georgia Institute of Technology via Udacity


This course covers the theory and practice of software analysis, which lies at the heart of many software development processes such as diagnosing bugs, testing, debugging, and more. It presents diverse techniques, each with their own strengths and limitations, for automating tasks such as testing, debugging, and finding bugs in complex real-world programs. These techniques include dataflow analysis, constraint-based analysis, type systems, model checking, symbolic execution, and more. The course teaches the principles underlying these techniques as well as imparts hands-on experience with using and implementing tools based on these techniques.
