<h1>Certified Programming with Dependent Types</h1>

<p>This is the web site for a textbook about practical engineering with <a href="">the Coq proof assistant</a>.  The focus is on building programs with proofs of correctness, using dependent types and scripted proof automation.</p>

<p>I'm following an unusual philosophy in this book, so it may be of interest even to long-time Coq users.  At the same time, I hope that it provides an easier introduction for newcomers, since short and automated proofs are the starting point, rather than an advanced topic.</p>

<p>Interested in using this book in a course you're teaching?  Please <a href="">drop me a line</a>!</p>

<p>A traditional hardcopy version is available from <a href="">MIT Press</a>, who have graciously agreed to allow distribution of free versions online indefinitely, minus the benefits of the Press' copy editing!</p>

<h2>Old versions</h2>

<p>Previous versions included a final Part on programming language semantics in particular.  I have decided to separate that part out.  I plan to put it up as a supplementary resource eventually; for now it is simply removed.  (It remains present in the <a href="repo">Mercurial</a> history.)</p>
