Hi! My name is Chris, you probably know me as RX14, and I’ve been a core team member since July 2017.
I found Crystal and joined IRC in August of 2015, started contributing in September, and contributed my first substantial PR in July 2016. I actually can’t remember how I found Crystal, probably through HN or searching the web. But I remember the first real thing I wrote in Crystal, just a few days after I joined IRC: fast_irc.cr. Using the language and seeing how close it was to ruby yet how fast it was got me hooked and the rest is history! I work mostly on the standard library, recently on the Windows port.
Outside of Crystal, I’m a university student at Bristol in the UK, studying Computer Science and Electronics. My hobbies include sysadminning my own servers, running the space society at uni, and amateur radio. I run Linux on my desktop, and enjoy learning about low-level topics.
If you want to grill me on myself or my opinions, please ask below :)
