Video: The Case for Crystal

This is a video of a talk I gave 2 years ago about Crystal. It has been renamed “The Case for Crystal” but in this video it has a different name. I have come a long way in refining this talk but I thought it might contribute to the community’s outreach of Crystal as a main stream language.

This presentation is in two parts, the first being the history of language development and the changes that make me believe Crystal will be a competitive language. After a discussion on language development, I cover an intro to Crystal and an overview of some of the basic features of the language.
