Today on the Coverity Development Testing Blog‘s continuing series Ask The Bug Guys, a question I’ve gotten many times in person over the years but never blogged about: just how difficult would it be to retrofit non-nullability into the .NET type system? Pretty hard, it turns out.
As always, if you have questions about a bug you’ve found in a C, C++, C# or Java program that you think would make a good episode of ATBG, please send your question along with a small reproducer of the problem to
TheBugGuys@Coverity.com. We cannot promise to answer every question or solve every problem, but we’ll take a selection of the best questions that we can answer and address them on the dev testing blog every couple of weeks.
