Crystal

by Luís Ferreira

Crystal is a language that looks a lot like Ruby, but is much faster and protects against certain errors, like preventing variables from being nil. Crystal’s standard lib comes bundled with support for WebSockets, OAuth and other nice utilities. It has a very simple testing framework, dependency management system, and even web frameworks. This is a very exciting time to come aboard the Crystal train, especially coming from a Ruby background.
