Things rarely go as planned, especially in the world of programming. Errors are the bane of a programmer’s existence. You write an awesome piece of code, are ready to execute it and build a powerful machine learning model, and then poof. Python throws up an unexpected error, ending your hope of quick code execution.



In the process of programming, we are always going to encounter various errors. Things rarely go as planned, especially in the world of programming. Errors are unavoidable when writing code, which can be frustrating at times. Every single one of us has faced this issue and emerged from it a better programmer. Dealing with bugs and errors is what builds our confidence in the long run and teaches us valuable lessons along the way. So, in this talk, we'll discuss different ways of handling errors and making our lives a little better. We'll talk about how code written with effective exception handling strategies can help us to catch bugs early in the software developmental cycle.
