Ary Borenszweig
Hi, I'm Ary! I'm a long time programmer (20+ years) who eventually stumbled upon Ruby and fell in love with it. I always liked languages (even spoken ones!) and so one day I had this idea of Ruby but typed and compiled. The result, Crystal, is not exactly like Ruby, but I think it retains big part of its fun and productivity factors.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and kid and also playing a lot of video games and playing a bit of piano and guitar.

So how does Crystal do its magic?
What's the single most used thing in Ruby and Crystal? What makes Ruby and Crystal so powerful and fun to use? In this talk we'll explore this and how Crystal manages to compile your high-level description of your program into a ready-to-execute binary.

Please rsvp by 12pm (noon) the day of the event. Walk-ins will not be allowed.

We Thank Braintree for sponsoring the meetup and providing food.

We are remote friendly as possible. Our Google Hangout will start 30 min before the meetup starts and chat will be monitored for the speaker.
