I’d love to see an in-depth treatment on exception handling in Rails 3. In particular, exceptions are a common occurrence in development, but obviously you don’t want your users running into Routing and RecordNotFound exceptions in the wild. Moreover, you probably want to log and handle these in specific ways (or perhaps try to rescue the user from them in nice ways).

There seems to be a lack of really good treatment of this topic in the Rails blog-o-sphere, so I’d love to see a great resource like Rails Dispatch talk about this in more depth.
