Many systems are full of error checks and conditional logic. They introduce discontinuities that make reasoning difficult. In this workshop, Michael Feathers will present a conceptual framework for dealing with errors, conditionality and decision making at the level of code, architecture and user interface. Participants will walk through examples where error handling and decision-making policy are critiqued and redesigned at all levels of systems. Often by changing design and revisiting requirements we can make various error cases impossible, and make code and architecture simpler as well as more robust.
