Items of Note

Meetings reminder

Community Resource Highlight

We like to take a moment in each Last Week in Pony to highlight a community resource. There are many community resources that can go unappreciated until just the right time when someone hops into the Ponylang Zulip asking a question or facing a problem we have all had at one time or another. Well here in Last Week in Pony, we make it just the right time to highlight one of our excellent community resources.

When working on a heavily recursive problem it is best to write tail-recursive functions. Writing such a function requires the last instruction of the function to be a call to the same function, such as in the Recursion page of the Tutorial. Note that in the non-recursive version of the function the last instruction will be the multiplication, while in the recursive version it will be the function again.

Last Week In Pony is a weekly blog post to catch you up on the latest news for the Pony programming language. To learn more about Pony, check out our website, our Twitter account @ponylang, or our Zulip community.
