In this Podcast
Miles Forrest interviews Avdi Grimm on his new book Exceptional Ruby.
Dealing with unexpected failures in code is tough, and most of the time error processing is dealt with in a haphazard way. Hear the five questions you need to ask before writing code to handle unexpected failures, as well as Avdi’s story about a cascading failure that went from bad to worse.
