I want a Pony!
Let's face it - concurrency is hard. Deadlocks, race conditions - these make your head hurt quite often, and trying to debug those issues only adds up more pain. Why don't we try to avoid those and still have our programs run concurrently? But can we do that? YES! Meet Pony. Pony is an object-oriented, capabilities-secure programming language with an actor model implementation at its core - here "actor" is a keyword! Pony is fun because it fixes most issues of concurrent programming. In the world of Pony it's the compiler that tells you whether your program is safe to execute. It's also type-safe, has no runtime exceptions and you can even use lambdas! I'll show you some examples of Pony programs, how its type system works and how capabilities render your concurrency safe.
