Crash

Fred’s post on the Zen of Erlang is delightful. Fred (the author of ‘Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good!‘) does a fantastic job of explaining how Erlang embraces failure and crashes, and how it provides abstractions to deal with these so that the programer can focus on core application logic. Even if you don’t use Erlang the post is full of good software architecture patterns and principles that can be applied to any programming language and software project.

This post is making me question my decision of focussing solely on learning Rust this year.
