Prefect: Positive and Negative Data Engineering

One of the leaders of the Apache Airflow project has been working on a (potentially?) new and improved data engineering platform called Prefect. Its focus: detect when pipeline issues arise without forcing you to write a million conditionals to detect every possible error scenario.

The post is interesting, but the tutorial doesn't really talk about how that secret sauce actually happens. I'm a little skeptical at this juncture, but at the same time have a lot of respect for the author's background in the problem space. I'd recommend following Prefect if you're an Airflow user today.
