Rholang is frequently touted as a fully concurrent programming language. It will be blazing fast because it executes things sequentially only when absolutely necessary. It allows us to avoid resource starvations and thread deadlock. And it isn't even clunky or hard to use, because all of this is built right into its concurrent computational model.
On September 5th, validators from around the world convened in Berlin, Germany to launch the test net. More precisely, they launched the first of several test nets that will be run between now and early 2019 when the "Mercury" main net launches.
If you've actually tried to code in Rholang, you may have noticed the reference material is sparse. That doesn’t mean it’s difficult, and you don’t have to wait to begin learning how to program for this new blockchain.
