Francesco Logozzo, a researcher at the Research in Software Engineering (RiSE) group at Microsoft Research, gives a demo of the Static Checker that comes with Code Contracts for .NET tools. The static checker allows you to verify that all the assertions in your code hold without actually running the code!
Francesco also goes to the whiteboard and gives us a short tutorial on Abstract Interpretation, the technique used by the static checker to prove the assertions.
