- Let It Crash and SO: Is Erlang's let-it-crash philosophy applicable elsewhere?, which links to A crash course in failure:
This is also a coding philosophy for the Erlang language. The view is that you don't need to program defensively. If there are any errors, the process is automatically terminated, and this is reported to any processes that were monitoring the crashed process. In fact, defensive programming in Erlang is frowned upon.
