Hi all, my name is Martin. I have been looking at Crystal from the sidelines for a long time, but now have decided to take a dive in and learn it.
As a long-time casual user of Ruby with a semi-interest in systems programming, Crystal has really piqued my interest.
My latest endeavour has been learning about building a language VM, for which I first started learning Rust, which was quite challenging. After rewriting some of that in Ruby, because I thought it would help me prototype faster, I have now decided that actually this would be a perfect opportunity to sit down and learn Crystal. So here I am.

Welcome to the Crystal community! Do you have a GitHub/GitLab/etc. profile? I’d love to see some of your work on this.
Thank you for the hearty welcome.
I have been too shy, honestly, to make any code in this line public, because it looks like a toddler’s scribbles.
But once I’ve had a chance to clean it up a little, I will put it up on GitHub.
I do have a GitHub account with some really oooold stuff though: mydoghasworms (Martin Ceronio) · GitHub
