We are thrilled to benefit of the generous hosting of Utah Valley University's Computer Science Department at its beautiful campus. UVU/CS has an excellent track record of preparing students for real-world software engineering jobs, and has been a long-time supporter of D by teaching it to its students. Special thanks are due Department Chair Chuck Allison.
The D programming language has continued to grow through 2014, undergoing a three-fold increase of dmd daily downloads from the main site. Quality and stability have improved all across the board for dmd, gdc, ldc, and the standard library.
DConf is the main face-to-face event for everyone and everything related to the D language and environment. Utah Valley University will host the conference at its campus in Orem, UT. We aim at making this next edition even bigger, better, and badder than DConf 2014!
Take a look at our schedule for topics that include language evolution, practice, and experience reports. Our speakers are a balanced collection of established and up-and-coming experts.
Want to tune in to the language's strategic vision and direction? Tune into Walter Bright's and Andrei Alexandrescu's keynotes. Core contributor Daniel Murphy will discuss automatic conversion of C++ code to D for achieving D compiler bootstrapping.
Hate garbage? So do we! Release czar and all-around D guru Martin Nowak has recently worked on dramatic improvements of D's garbage collector, which he will share, along with tips and tricks for better memory performance, in his talk.
What's the deal with them ranges everybody talks about? Glad you asked! Listen to D veteran contributor Jonathan M. Davis is up for an introduction. Also learn about dynamic types and correct use of floating point.An assortment of talks featuring topics such as tooling, runtime support, memory hierarchy, porting large codebases, and behavior-driven development complete a strong program.)
