Correct Code by Construction

Programming Languages

In this talk we will give introduction to the possibilities of writing code that is verified using proofs.

The scene is a dialog between the developer and the (dependent) typechecker demonstrated as a dialog between the two speakers.

The talk will illustrate how the typechecker can aid the developer to write correct programs using proofs. We will demo the basics with examples from Boolean logic and recursive functions using induction. We will talk about how this is used in practice in browser security and smart contracts.
