Last Week in Pony - March 27, 2022

Sunday, March 27, 2022 | Posted in Last Week in Pony

The March 22nd Pony development sync recording is available, along with video since there was a good amount of screen sharing during the meeting.

Items of note

  • The first 30 minutes of the Pony development sync on March 22nd was a fairly normal affair as the full audio will show. Around the 30 minute mark, a group debugging of an issue open by Red Davies ensued along with lots of “this will make for great radio jokes”. Because there was a good amount of screen sharing, we’ve also made the video available for those who want to get a feel for this particular ponyc compiler bug debugging session. Be forewarned, its a 431 meg download.

Issue of the Week

This week’s issue is Incorrect information in the ponysuspendthreshold help string on the ponyc repo. This involves fixing an inaccurate help string for a Pony runtime option.
