One of the big problems in software development is that a lot of energy is spent on understanding existing code, whether it was written by other programmers or by the current developer long time ago. Bartosz will argue that a large part of code analysis can be automated using exotic new techniques inspired by biology, cellular automata, document processing, and more.


Bartosz is a theoretical physicist turned programmer. He is the author of the book, C++ In Action, published by Addison-Wesley in 2001. He founded Reliable Software LLC in 1996 to get first-hand experience in creating and maintaining a large software project—a version-control system called Code Co-op. Studying complexity is his main interest.
