DataHour Session: Software Engineering- A Methodology for Reliable Software

About DataHour: Our Speaker, Vineeth Paleri, Professor, National Institute of Technology, Calicut, will stress the need for conscious application of programming principles to produce reliable software. Unreliable software can cause severe harm to society, including loss of lives. The proposed software engineering methodology emphasizes specification and design before coding. The methodology uses the separation of concerns as the key principle to address the complexity of problems. The methodology also adopts a modular design strategy to control the complexity of software with procedural abstraction and data abstraction as the basic principles behind it. The approach takes the view that software as a product is not just the code but a package consisting of the specification, the program, and the proof that the program meets the specification.
