Hi all! There wasn’t a channel that quite fits the kind of post I have but it’s technically a contribution so I’ll put it here.
Crystal 1.0 launched recently and the response from the general developer community was underwhelming. Let’s be honest; The general developer community didn’t even notice that crystal 1.0 launched.
I want to fix this by doing a strong marketing push for Crystal.
For Crystal to become mainstream we need to get more attention for the project and I am here to do that.
My current idea is this:
Reach out to all big sites and get them to talk about crystal 1.0.
Repeat for big youtubers and twitch streamers.
If we can get enough people talking about crystal at the same time than the hype will feed on itself and Crystal will get the attention it deserves.
I love Crystal and seeing it get ignored like this isn’t something I can live with.
That’s what I think. I sent this here so that i can get some input on it from you guys. I really don’t want Crystal to end up like every other second class language. The Crystal community members have poured their souls into the language so we can’t just let it sit like this and quietly die.
What do you guys think?
