Basic Toolmaking - robust scripting for unattended execution

In this talk, we will look at the challenges of scripting where the user in front of the console cannot react to unforeseen events such as exceptions or systems being unreachable at execution time. As an enterprise scripter, it's your responsibility to make your script robust enough that they execute correctly every time and do not wreak havoc if some of the conditions at execution time are not as you (and everybody else) assumed they would be.
