Discussion on: Performance Comparison, Rust vs Crystal with Redis

I'm really surprised at this, I honestly thought that rust was hard to beat at a performance level, and that a code like crystal, which definetely looks like scripting, couldn't beat rust. I hope you continue with these articles. I think Crystal is a hidden gem, it's not getting (yet) the difussion it deserves.
BTW, it's great to see you interacting with the people that created the rust library and exchanging widom, open source rocks!!!

If Crystal code looks like scripting (heavily inspired by Ruby), it's still a compiled language, so it makes sense that its performances are waaaaaay better than what you can expect from scripting languages :)
