Flow9 vs Crystal

#1

Any thoughts on flow9 (never heard of it before but seems mature and modern(?)) vs Crystal for someone wanting to take the leap into programming again?

#2

Crystal is a compiled object-oriented language, flow9 is a vm-based functional one, they are quite opposite in many aspects. I would suggest to try both to see which looks easier to you.

#3

Is it VM-based though? Seems to list up a whole lot of compliation targets.

When it comes to object-oriented vs functional I think the first is easier for me as an old dabbler in Ruby and C++.

Anyway, I have no idea, just deeply wanted someone to rant and reinforce my conviction to Crystal :slight_smile:

#4

The other interesting language is probably release next month, my rant is blazing fast compilation and lower memory could be useful for embedded devices and cloud.
