Pony Performance Cheat Sheet

Yesterday we added the first revision of the Pony Performance Cheat Sheet to the website. There’s a ton of valuable information. Even if you aren’t a Pony programmer, we think you’ll get something out of it. And you Pony programmers who are interested in performance? It’s a must read for you.

  • Back in early July, Sean T. Allen travelled to Paris to talk Pony at Polyconf 17. Slides are now available for “Why Pony? Bleeding edge technology for your concurrency woes”.
  • Kevin Hoffman keeps rolling along with another Pony related blog post: “Modeling Non-Blocking Interactions with Actors in Pony”.
  • Brian Sletten gave a talk on Pony at No Fluff Just Stuff. It wasn’t recorded but slides are available. Sadly, they were eventually taken down.
