This second edition of the Infer Practitioners Workshop gathers together developers and researchers working with the Infer static analysis platform. Infer enables anyone to write their own scalable inter-procedural static analysis for C, C++, Objective-C, and Java source code in only a few lines of code. Infer is deployed at several companies where it helps developers write better code. Inside Facebook, thousands of code changes are analysed every month by Infer, leading to thousands of bugs being found and fixed before they reach the codebase. Infer is also being used in academia, both as a research tool and a teaching medium.
The goal of the workshop is to share knowledge about how to use and modify Infer in industrial and academic contexts.
