Abstract: Talk about steps and processes used to get (near) complete D support in GDB and Binutils. From recognising primitive types to writing a D-style expression parser to run D code interactively with the program in debug. And if using a black and white TUI is not your idea of debugging, there's D syntax highlighting support in CGDB on show too.
Benefits: Raise general awareness of what is happening around the GDB and Binutils projects, and give users a tutorial on how they can expect to use these applications in the future to maximise their own ability to track down issues in D programs from link-time to runtime debugging.
Speaker Bio: Lead developer, project coordinator and the principal force behind the development of the GNU D Compiler from as far back as 2009, where have been responsible for the migration over from D1 to D2, as well as from GCC 3.x to GCC 4.x. Others might be interested to know that outside hobby life I work on for a Cloud Services/Hosting company as a Technical Engineer, and unofficially use D on a frequent basis to develop interpreters, and various plug-ins to work within our infrastructure.
