Pony is a fast actor-based programming language that guarantees that programs will not have data races. This workshop will teach participants about some of Pony’s core ideas and patterns by having them write a series of small programs that culminate in a simple chat server. Topics covered will include Pony’s actor system, reference capabilities, and working with the compiler. Attendees should bring a laptop with the following software installed: the Pony compiler, and a telnet client. They should also clone the workshop git repository.
