Abstract: When term "declarative programming" is used in context of imperative languages, it is most often associated with Domain-Specific Languages. However, it is a more general approach with essential value of separating meaningful description from boilerplate behavior. It is already widely used in D programs and won't be a revelation for any experienced D users.
This talk tries to somewhat generalize this approach and popularize it as common D paradigm, as well as speculate upon possible improvements to D reflection capabilities that can make it even more powerful.
Speaker Bio: Programming & open-source enthusiast. Contributor to several D projects, most notably vibe.d. D developer at Sociomantic Labs. One of Arch Linux Trusted Users.
