Hi! My name is Ary and I go around as asterite
Some years ago I asked myself: what if we could somehow statically compile Ruby? The first idea that came up was to type methods as use you them. I prototyped something and then gave a small talk about it at Manas. Juan and Brian really liked it but the code wasn’t very good so we started almost from scratch (just reusing the lexer and parser) and then began the fun process of creating a new language.
I recently had a baby so I have less time to code in and for Crystal, but my passion is still the same
In my free time I enjoy playing video games (hence my nickname), many times with my wife, mainly puzzle games (like The Witness, Talos Principle, Antichamber, Braid, etc.), platformers, rogue-likes, metroidvanias and many other genres. I’m currently playing Stephen’s Sausage Roll, The Messenger and Undertale. I also used to play a bit more the guitar and piano but now I’m rusted.
I hope you all have fun with Crystal!
