DConf 2015 has successfully concluded!

DConf 2015, the conference of the D programming language, took place at Utah Valley University in Orem, UT, May 27-29 2015.

We were thrilled to benefit from 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 hosted the conference at its campus in Orem, UT

Schedule Highlights

Take a look at our schedule for topics that include language evolution, practice, and experience reports. Our speakers comprised 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 discussed automatic conversion of C++ code to D for achieving D compiler bootstrapping.

Don't miss experience reports from using D in varied domains such as large-scale storage systems, hedge funds, database drivers, scientific computing, teaching at university level, and learning.

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 random number generation.

An assortment of talks featuring topics such as tooling, runtime support, memory hierarchy, porting large codebases, and behavior-driven development completed a strong program.)
