A Practical Approach to Error Handling

Arno Schoedl

60 minute session
14:00-15:00, Tuesday, 5th July 2022

Every program may encounter errors, some originating from internal bugs in the program, others coming from the environment the program is operating in. Ignoring all errors will make the program utterly unreliable, while treating every conceivable one introduces lots of extra complexity with little benefit. At think-cell, we have been using and refining our own principled approach to error handling, which we have not seen elsewhere. This talk describes our method, so that in your next project you can write more reliable software with less effort.
