Best learning resource for Crystal if you are already an experienced programmer?


#1

I’m interested in diving into Crystal over the holidays. What do you think is the best material to learn Crystal if you’re already an experienced programmer?

Appreciate the tips!

Once you’re ready to start making something, check out:
