This talk is part of the Triangle Computer Science Distinguished Lecturer Series
The perpetual elusiveness of correct-by-design software fosters the need of techniques to "find and fix" software deficiencies whether they arise from design, operational or deliberate instances. With the intent of post-design software fixes, the talk ruminates on the fun, value and science of experimental techniques to "kick n' fix" software.
