  • Does anyone use formal methods to validate the behaviour of programs/software at their job?

    I would like to do this more. At the moment I don't do formal verification. However, I often borrow methodology from the excellent book Algebra-Driven Design (text available on GitHub but support the author if you find it useful!) when designing systems. This means I define algebraic data types to describe the program and the laws that relate the different types, and use that to guide implementation in a language that doesn't support ADTs.

  • Do you feel static types have "won the war", so to speak?

    Their approach might be to express their business logic as a carefully selected collection of types and laws, as described in Algebra-Driven Design (the full text is available on GitHub, please support the author if you find it useful though). I recommend this book to everyone because, even if you don't use this approach to design your programs, it's an excellent way to think about problems and better understand the problem space.
  • Does anybody know a simple algorithm for generating unit tests given a function's code?

    This reminds me of QuickSpec (different from QuickCheck) in Haskell. It takes Haskell code and finds the Mathematical laws that the code supports. It does this using a sort of smart random search. I learned about this as part of the Algebra Driven Design book.
