    Exceptional C Exceptions

    2) Proper error handling. I used to think that I missed exception handling (and actually wrote this C exception library: Exceptional C Exceptions). But since discovering Go I realized that I need something far simpler: the ability to return a tuple from any function, in which the last element is always an error code. It's far better than exceptions, actually, because it doesn't technically change anything about the calling convention and makes error handling explicit rather than "hidden".

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
