Interesting paper on effectiveness of error messages in a compiler and which one helps the user the most.

Making error messages not-shitty has been one of my most obsessive contribution of soft on which I've been working on and it really do a very big difference at the end of the day. Especially if you are the one making support.

I'm still a bit sad that this is not one of the major focus of dev in general :/
