Learn how to identify and solve software bugs in your code
Want to improve your ability to identify and fix bugs in code?
On this course, youâ€™ll discover how to reduce bugs during software development. Youâ€™ll learn with examples in both C and Fortran programming languages and understand how to catch bugs early using compiler features and writing tests for your code.
Youâ€™ll learn to find the bugs in your code using the best tools available including debuggers and code analysers. Youâ€™ll also look at parallel programs and explore tools for debugging parallel code at scale.
By the end of the course, youâ€™ll feel confident writing high-quality and clean code.
This is an intermediate level course aimed at people with some programming experience. Although examples will be given in C and Fortran, the principles (and most of the tools) are transferable to other programming languages.
