Upcoming PRACE MOOC: Defensive programming and debugging

What is a software bug? How can we prevent them? How can we find and fix them quickly and efficiently?

If you are a programmer or have ever used software applications, you know that software bugs can have serious consequences and that finding and fixing bugs is a difficult and time consuming task.

In the Defensive Programming and Debugging MOOC, you will learn to minimize the number of bugs, pinpoint and fix them using professional tools and techniques for both serial and parallel programs.
