Rethinking Errors: Learning from Scala and Go
PyCon US 2013
Bruce Eckel
Recorded: March 15, 2013Language: English

C++ brought exceptions to mainstream programming; Java goes further with checked exceptions. But are exceptions the one way to report all errors?

I’ll show the Scala and Go approaches to the error problem, and how to apply this to Python.
