Congrats to everyone involved in producing & delivering the Crystal goods to the masses. I am super confident the language will grow as it gets more exposure in production & the media.
Also, I truly believe that it’ll make a great first programming language introduction since its syntax is so readable & easy to grasp. I will definitely be promoting Crystal to the locals over here in East Africa where I have a good network of IT professionals whom I like to share knowledge & information on Linux & Windows Server.
Just always remember quality before quantity in terms of your deliverables.
Onwards, fellow crystalizers! Let us crystalize the world with the always fun, slick, fast, modern, powerful & efficient Crystal programming language.
