The Crystal official code repository is on GitHub, so any bugs you find in either the language, compiler or standard library should be reported here - and pull requests are always welcome.
The crystal-lang Google Groups mailing list is the first to-go place for any general discussion. Feel free to ask a question, share your project with others, ask for guidance and best practices, offer your help contributing to a project, or anything else Crystal-related.
New Releases, Use Cases and more
In the official Crystal blog you can find the detailed announcements for new releases, some interesting use cases, the rationale behind some of the language's design decisions and things the team write around the code they usually write.
We also accept posts from guest writers, so if you have something awesome you have built with Crystal, contact us and we'll be happy to have you featured on the blog.
General Announcements and Events
The Twitter account will often tweet general announcements on releases and events, and retweet any interesting articles from the tweetosphere. Be sure to mention it if you are tweeting about Crystal!
Share Your Work
The Crystal Programming subreddit contains announcements on new releases, interesting libraries, blog posts, and is in general a good place to share your work with the rest of the Crystal community.
Ask For Help
Of course, there is a crystal-lang tag in StackOverflow. Ask for help with your Crystal project there, or help other people solve theirs - learning & sharing all the way through.
The crystalshards.xyz service provides an uncurated view of all repositories on GitHub that have Crystal code in them. With its search capability you can find the shard or application you're looking for.
There are ongoing Crystal meetups on multiple cities around the globe, as well as online meetups, and Crystal presentations on programming conferences - there’s a good chance that you’ll find a Crystal talk at your nearest Rubyconf. Stay tuned for events near your location!
