Last Weeks Playground
I hereby celebrate the creation of the weekly Pony
Last Weeks Playground section.
You have a wicked Pony Playground example that you want to share? Some cool language feature you just found out about and want let people know it exists? Some surprising behavior that you find interesting? Some weird bug, that gives you a headache? Or just something really elegant that wouldn’t be possible to express in other languages?
No matter what, share it! There is no good or bad or simple or advanced.
- Add some module docstring at the top of your playground link in which the sharable feature of the code below is explained.
- Submit your Playground Link (Use the
Gistbutton and share the appearingPlayground link) as a comment to the current Last Week in Pony Issue.
- Take part in the voting Process by adding a
+1reaction on the comment.
- In case of a tie, I am executing my powers as Last Week in Pony author to decide which one should be featured.
- There can be only one!
As I just invented this crazy section, I am taking the freedom to post the first link:
This one is about generic primitives.
Pony Development Sync
The Pony developers met on their weekly sync call on Wednesday February 28, 2018. Check out the recorded audio.
The next one is scheduled for Wednesday, March 07, 2018 at 03:30 PM (GMT-05:00) America/New York via zoom. Join the Dev Mailing List to get all the details. We’d love to have you there.
Final Comment Period
- Compile Time Expressions!!! For a little context: This is a preparation step for Value Dependent Types.
Rename Logger in net/http to HTTPLogger in order to avoid name clashes in the standard library.
Active (Waiting for Implementation)
