Episode 12 of the Pony Virtual Users’ Group is available.

Items of note

  • There was no Pony development sync this week as Sean had work commitments and Joe had personal ones.

  • Episode 12 of the Pony Virtual Users’ Group is available. It’s 100 minutes of deep dive into a tricky aarch64 runtime bug. We touch on TOCTOU problems, the ABA problem, atomics, and a mess of deep Pony runtime information.
