Tag: TLA+

TLA+ is a formal specification language used to model software systems. We can take the specification and check if it satisfies the properties we want, or produce a counterexample if it doesn’t. TLA+ is exceptionally well-suited for specifying concurrent and distributed systems, everything from kernel spinlocks to communicating microservices.

TLA+ is my specialty. I’ve written numerous articles and two guides, the Practical TLA+ book and the learntla free website. I also offer consulting services.
