Firstly, congratulations to the Crystal Core Team and community for hitting 1.0! I’m a huge fan of Ruby and Ruby-like languages and was very excited when Crystal first appeared - it’s awesome seeing it come so far!
We are starting a Programming Crystal Book Club over on Devtalk and I wondered if anyone would like to join us? (You’re welcome to make use of our discount coupon ‘

If you’re wondering what being part of a book club entails, it’s really just those taking part documenting their journey with the book and language in a shared thread and with a conversational approach. They can actually be a lot of fun and can also prove interesting for others interested in the book or language - so a great way to help the wider community and help generate buzz and excitement around a language too.
I’m actually really looking forward to the Programming Crystal book club as I am particularly interested in seeing how easy it might be for Rubyists like myself to pick up.
I hope this is the correct section for this thread and that it’s ok to post it (if not, mods please feel free to move/edit as you see fit). For everyone else, I hope some of you will enjoy reading our book club thread and it would be awesome if some of you decide to join us!
