    I use pony as a language - it's an Actor based language with GC where every actor has its own memory and is responsible for its own GC.

    The main feature is its ability to safely share or move data around between actors in a way that is data-race and deadlock free. Pony doesn't use locks anyways :-)

    A high level as to how it achieves this:

    And it's not just the mathematics. The non-type-theoretic paradigm-upending let-it-crash-to-keep-code-correct resilience for which Erlang/Elixir is famous was one of the biggest eye-openers for me in my programming career (which began in 1972 when I was 12). Also, the simple behaviour and very high performance results of contemporary Actorish implementations, especially and the in-some-ways-more-impressive and related ORCA GC ("concurrent and parallel garbage collector for actor programs ... does not require any STW steps, or synchronization mechanisms ... zero-copy message passing and sharing of mutable data ... data race free ... [no] read/write barriers"), are eye-catching affirmations of the Actor model's approach.

    There's an http server and a small "sinatra" like web framework.



    Someone might have done SQLite for Pony, but I'm not aware of it. Writing network protocol stuff in Pony is usually pretty easy and the C-FFI is usually pretty easy which generally makes writing database connectivity (for at least happy path basics) fairly easy. (Add lots of caveats here).

    If you'd like to talk more in-depth, swing by the Zulip and myself and other folks from the community can help out with answers.
