Last Week’s Playground

This week I am going to present you the with expression in Pony. The with expression???, you ask? Yes, this undocumented gem that definitely needs more coverage in the tutorial.

Here is the playground link: http://playground.ponylang.io/?gist=c8d70a175b7fde58d42f021e88595a89

In case you want to submit one (which I highly recommend), just add it as a comment to the current Last Week in Pony Issue and let people vote with +1 reactions. The one with the most votes is presented (Or i just present them all. Depends on my Sunday evening mood).
