That is awesome. I wonder what got him interested now?

This might be the reason: https://www.reddit.com/r/crystal_programming/comments/dh7a0h/shopify_ceo_tobi_is_building_a_web_app_with/f3kr8pc/

They also hired the person behind faastruby which had support for Crystal. Maybe the plan is to move some stuff into their own serverless world running Crystal? Excited to see

I would love this to happen.

However “had support for Crystal” is not the same as “running Crystal”. Is it a known fact that faastRuby backed was implemented in Crystal, or had some parts implemented in Crystal?

The back end was Crystal with Kemal. @parruda talked about it a lot.
