TCLP 2008-08-20 Hacking 101: Errors and Exceptions (Comment Line 240-949-2638)

This is a feature cast.

In the intro, a heads up that I will again be traveling to Dragon*Con in one weeks where I will be volunteering, among other things, on the podcasting track. If you’ll be at the con or live in the area, let me know, I’d love to organize a mini-meetup.

There is also time to submit questions, written or as audio, for the audio promo. And if you don’t regularly read the web site, there has been an interesting discussion on the latest week in review post.

The hacker word of the week this week is dike.

The feature this week is a new Hacking 101 on errors and exceptions. You may also be interested in the older Inner Chapter on failures and errors, I think the two pieces complement each other nicely. Also, here is the Wikipedia entry on design by contract which I mention in the feature.
