The crystal language, an ode to ruby, by Timothee Clain and Nicholas Gelinas

Talk level: beginner

The crystal language is a statically-typed, compiled, and ruby-like language with terrific performance.

While still young, it could be the next ruby with enough love and interest, capitalizing on the fact that its learning curve is quasi null for any decent rubyist.

This talks will outline the current state of the language, its advantages, drawbacks and perspective.
