Even though coding theory applications in fault tolerant computing started with Hamming code invention, their developments were made almost independently from those in information and communication theories after this initiation. This paper gives a brief overview on coding theory applications in fault tolerant computing. A more detailed survey was made on the most important recent developments. Since there are many items of mutual interest to engineers in both fields, mutual stimulations and cooperations between them would be highly appreciated for future mutual developments in coding theory applications.
