DConf London Part 3

Join us at CodeNode in London once again from August 29 – September 1, 2023, for the D Programming Language Conference, sponsored by Symmetry Investments and hosted by the D Language Foundation. This will be our third time in London, thanks to Symmetry's support, and we’re thrilled to be back! DConf ‘22 at CodeNode was a huge success, with overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees. In fact, it was the best one yet, and we’re committed to making DConf ‘23 even better.

DConf is the premier meetup event for the D programming language community. Although we continue to hold regular online meetups, nothing compares to the energy and camaraderie of face-to-face interactions. At DConf, both seasoned veterans and first-time attendees, and many in between, come together for four days of education, knowledge sharing, and fun. We can't wait to do it all again!

Keynote Speakers

Our DConf '22 venue is CodeNode, a space in Central London specifically designed for tech conferences. It's conveniently located close between Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations and is a 10–15 minute walk from Old Street Station to the north.

Our presentations will happen on the ground floor in the CTRL room, and we'll have the entirety of the ESC area downstairs to ourselves, where attendees can relax, chat, or play table tennis or foosball between talks.


There are several budget hotels in easy walking distance. The following are some options that, according to Google Maps, are less than a 20-minute walk from the venue. Some of them are near an underground station that is one stop away from Moorgate or Liverpool Street stations. Click a link to see the walking route(s) between a hotel and the venue. On the map, you'll find links to reserve a room.
