Dealing with function failures in C++ (2018)

When a function fails, how should you report the failure: throw an exception, or return an error code? In this talk we will not answer this question, but instead explore the motivation that leads people to to choose one way or the other.

Finally, we will have a peek at the future plans for the next generation failure handling in C++.
