This month, I am providing a handy method for whomever needs to transform a decimal value in a fraction representation. I have been required to do this in the past few months on a report. For example 1.25 needed to be read as 1 1/4.

I just published a new article about something I did over the last few weeks. I reviewed an application written by somebody else. One of the first thing I was told was that the application was not stable at all. It was crashing many times a day without understanding why. The users were really not happy of that behavior.
Because the app was not mine, I just didn’t want to add error handlers everywhere. I was looking for a more global way of at least give a something to user so they can at least report a specific error message to me with as much details as possible.
This article will show you how to a global error handler for any unhandled errors of your application. You should never rely only on this error handler for all the features of your application. It should only be used for unexpected errors.
