From one of the contributors: “Crystal will eventually have go-style parallelism as well as go-style concurrency. It’s a hard thing to implement, and we don’t have the resources of google (in fact we have very little resources at all) so it’s taking time. Until 3 weeks ago, nobody at all was working full-time on crystal, it was entirely a spare-time project, so progress is slow, i’m incredibly proud of what we’ve managed to achieve so far and looking forward to more in the future.”

    Exciting to see this progress in Crystal. On the subject of concurrency, I’ve seen several languages recently discuss the goal implementing “Golang” style M:N parallelism. I’d love to take a crack at implementing ConcurrentML for one of these languages based on this excellent post: https://wingolog.org/archives/2018/05/16/lightweight-concurrency-in-lua
