It's 2021 and we are still dealing with integer overflow. Just a few months ago I came within 24 hours of watching one of the worlds tech unicorns come to a stop due to possible int overflow problems. Join me while I discuss the nature of the problem, why we still see it today, and cover many of the various options to work your way through a pending int overflow. I also talk about some of the more advanced work we did to make sure our bases were covered, and walk through techniques you can use to keep from hitting the wall, including some code templates to help get you started.
