THE STORIES OF THE MOST INFAMOUS BUGS

Presented by: Ian Zelikman
Time: Friday, Jan. 11, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Whenever we write code we eventually make mistakes and have “bugs”. We employ many techniques including testing and reviews to avoid them but some mistakes still make it into production. The topic of famous bugs in history has intrigued me for a very long time and it is a subject I enjoy researching. In this talk we will explore 5 of the most famous bugs, their consequences and what we can learn from them: Why the Mars climate orbiter did not orbit
 How the Ariane-5 rocket was lost
 Waiting for the long distance AT&T call
 How the world didn’t end in September 1983
 The fatal Patriot missile miscalculation
