Unsession: Getting in the saddle with the Pony programming language

Pony is a type-safe, compiled, actor-based programming language that provides compile-time data safety guarantees. Two of the most interesting features are the reference capability system that guarantees safety by controlling how objects can be shared between actors, and the event-based runtime. In this session I'll spend some time introducing Pony and then answer questions and walk through some code. By the end of the session participants should feel like they know what makes Pony unique and have a good feel for the kinds of problems they might tackle with it.
