Crystal: Fast as C, Slick as Ruby

The Changelog

Ary Borenszweig and Juan Wajnerman, the folks behind Crystal, joined the show to talk about the goals of the language, how it’s the best of both worlds between Ruby and C, why if it’s so close to and inspired by Ruby why not just give their time/effort to Ruby instead, the new compiler, and we also discussed what’s left before Crystal can go 1.0.
