Abstract: Breaking up is never easy and taking the plunge opens a Pandora’s Box of difficult questions. This talk will answer some of those questions and provide direction for anyone looking to convert their C# software to D. We will focus on the practical issues that anyone converting their project from C# to D will face. These issues include, but are not limited to, the differences between C# Namespaces and D Modules, Strings, Scoping, Properties, and what to expect while converting from the .NET Base Class Library to Phobos. This talk will be code-centric featuring real-world examples and how-to’s.
Benefits: This presentation will provide a roadmap to any developer who is currently working with C# and interested in converting their code D. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the differences between the two languages that will allow them to more easily transition to D.
