Introduction to Crystal

Summary

I'd love to see a week of videos on Crystal, covering the basics

Reasoning

I think we all need to learn a new Systems Programming language every now and then. A lot of people know and love Ruby. Being able to do Systems Programming in a language with familiar Ruby syntax seems amazingly powerful.

Flexbox is confusing, and having some detailed coverage of it would be really nice!

Nintendo Switch is the newest system by Nintendo, and is said to be extremely developer friendly. Let's find out how developer friendly it is by creating a basic game on it.

OTP

Fábio Beirão

03.28.2017

We all love Erlang and Elixir, but OTP is the true power behind it. The whole let it crash way of thinking, the supervision trees, naming strategies across nodes, replicating data, eventual consistency, enforcing business rules/invariants across a distributed system, etc.

I believe ElixirSips had touched this subject, but I don't know how up-to-date ElixirSips is (I feel Elixir evolved syntactically, but the ideas might still be there).

My proposal is to have a drip that is a little more code agnostic and more about distributed thinking.
