Extreme Reliability

Programming like your life depends on it

About the Book

We just accept that software is inherently flawed, that all software contains bugs like original sin, and we design our processes around that. But what if it were possible to write software correctly? What if we could create bug-free, maintainable code? And what if it were cheaper, faster and easier to write correct code than to write the buggy variety? What then?

It turns out that it is possible to write perfect code. In fact, perfect code is not that uncommon – we have been entrusting our lives to it for decades. What do they do, these perfect programmers, that the rest of us don’t? What research backs up their practices? Can we all do what they do?

The message in this book is: yes, there really are techniques and methodologies which will deliver industrial-scale software development. Tucked away in unregarded corners of our industry, there are developers turning out high-quality software in a scalable fashion. Presented here is: this is how other great programmers have understood (and solved) their reliability problems, and this is what we can learn from them.

This book is for developers and technical leads who want to eliminate not just 95% of their bugs, but all of them.
