John Hughes is co-founder and CEO of Quviq AB, and the originator of Quviq QuickCheck. From 2002-2005 he led a major research project in software verification, funded by the Swedish Strategic Research Foundation. This led to the development of Quviq QuickCheck in Erlang. Before John's involvement with Erlang, he was deeply involved with the design of Haskell from the start, and co-chaired the committee that defined the current language standard. At the Erlang eXchange, John will talk about Quick Check for Erlang.

Quick Check for Erlang
Featuring John Hughes
Testing is a major part of all software development—yet no matter how much effort is spent on it, some errors always seem to slip through. Cases which no‐one thought to test crash systems late in development or out in the field, revealing errors which cost time and money to analyze,...erlang quickcheck
Quick Check Tutorial: Using QuickCheck to Test Erlang Programs
Featuring John Hughes and Thomas Arts
In this tutorial, John Hughes and Thomas Arts will use examples to show how developers write QuickCheck specifications—which are actually Erlang programs using the QuickCheck API—and use them to test code written in Erlang or other programming languages. We will show how QuickCheck’s shrinking...erlang quickcheck
