An Introduction to Crystal: Fast as C, Slick as Ruby
I’m a Rubyist. I love Ruby, the community, the productivity, and so many other things about it. For more than four years now, I’ve written Ruby professionally, and I’d really like to keep it that way. But I’m also aware that languages and tools are destined to be replaced.
Ruby is awesome, but it’s not necessarily known for its speed. Sometimes it’s not the right tool for demanding applications. And we have to wait a while for Ruby 3×3 to happen.
