Laravel and Murphy’s Law

Patrick Brouwers, the creator of Laravel Excel, explains how to handle failing jobs in Laravel

When designing software, don’t only think about the happy path. Write down (preferably with (unit) tests) what all the things are that could go wrong. Then design your solution to be able to recover those situations. (Wether or not automatic.) There isn’t a single solution to rule them all, some processes might need to have specific failure handling while others are fine with the default approach.
