Discussion on: We created the Crystal language, ask us anything!

You could look at what Rust is doing with incremental compilation. They do type inference in a similar way (though less insane) and they've been working on getting incremental compilation for a few years now.

We do a look a lot at Rust, not only regarding incremental compilation. We really like how they organized the community, for example. And given they also use LLVM, we sometimes can leverage some of their findings, tooling or advances, so if there's any member of the Rust team seeing this: thank you for being a source of inspiration :).

I like how Crystal community is learning from other languages, not just Ruby :)
