There should be no server errors shown directly to the user. If there are things, like external systems you rely on, you should be catching those exceptions and displaying your own error. Logging on production is very important to make sure you catch anything that might get by.

Justin Horner , I guess Robbie meant something different. I also wondered, should we change the error level to "always show" as Alena Holligan did in this video in projects that go for a production. I think Robbie meant this.
