Developers encounter different kinds of problems in web development. They may also range from simple to complex ones depending on the work being done. That is the reason why new programming languages continue to emerge as years passed by because no matter how great the existing programming languages are, each has its own share of disadvantages.

Recently, another programming language has been created by developers - the Pony. It was designed by Sylvan Clebsch and it is ideal in finding solutions for problems in the computing systems.

Pony is an open-source, object-oriented, and an ahead-of-time or AOT compiled programming language. It was built using the actor-model of computation. Its runtime has the capacity to work with CPU that have modern designs.

Correctness and performance are the two main consideration of the high-performance programming language Pony. How does it do that? It consists of mathematical proofs so it is really type-safe. Furthermore, there is no concept of null with this programming language and there are no dangling pointers and buffer overruns as well. The data are also safe as it separates data using the single reference pointer. It also comes with a compiler feature which assures its safety.

To sum it up, here are the best features of Pony:
1. Data Safety
2. Memory-Safe
3. Correctness
4. Built Using Actor-Model

What can you say about it? Are you also convinced that Pony is the best solution to computing systems problems? Feel free to drop your comments below. Thank you.
