报告摘要:Contemporary software systems are increasingly developed and operated according to a DevOps style, which supports a continuous, iterative view of development and operation, combining flexibility with adequate levels of management and control. In addition, the software itself is designed in a way that it can partly self-manage its evolution. This highly dynamic setting seems to preclude the use of formal methods. The agile movement has traditionally been hostile to formal methods, and the formal methods world hasn't done much to embrace agility. Likewise, formal methods and runtime environments traditionally don't speak to each other. The talk argues that these worlds that are traditionally separate should and could be brought together. DevOps and formal methods are not an oxymoron, but can live together with potential high benefits on software quality. The talk focuses on a key issue in bringing these worlds together: making formal specification and verification incremental. Some steps in this direction are described, although this remains as challenge for the software engineering research community.
