192: Crystal with Ary Borenszweig and Juan Wajnerman

January 29, 2016 at 2:00AM • 58 minutes • Wiki Entry

This week we were joined by Ary Borenszweig and Juan Wajnerman -- the folks behind Crystal. We talked about 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.
