Join us for another hands-on workshop led by Andy Turley from Wallaroo Labs. Learn Pony (, a fast actor-based programming language which 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.

• Fast track your check-in by pre-registering here:

• Make sure to bring a laptop with the following software installed: the Pony compiler, and a telnet client. Also, clone the workshop git repository.
