September 17–20, 2024

Symmetry Investments and the D Language Foundation are thrilled to invite you to the D Programming Language Conference 2024 in London, from September 17–20. With help once more from our friends at Brightspace Events, we’re excited to return to our favorite venue, CodeNode.

DConf is more than a conference; it’s a community celebration. It’s where DLang enthusiasts and experts from across the globe converge for four days of knowledge sharing, collaboration, and fun. Though our regular online meetups are valuable, they can’t replicate the connection and energy of in-person interactions, be it during engaging sessions, casual chats, or our nightly BeerConf.

Whether you’re a seasoned DConf veteran or joining us for the first time, we can’t wait to welcome you to London!

Registration

GBP rates are based on the HMRC Exchange Rate for the current month. Note that this rate is static for the month and will most likely differ from the rate used by PayPal or your credit card company. You may find the USD PayPal link to result in a lower or higher charge on your GBP credit card than the GBP link.

A 20% VAT is added to the base registration rates.

Venue

Our DConf ’24 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.

Accommodations

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. Note that most attendees generally stay at the Travelodge London Central City Road.

Sponsors

Symmetry Investments

DConf ’24 is sponsored by our friends at Symmetry Investments. With offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Jersey, and the Cayman Islands, Symmetry employs D in their investment management mission. This is the fourth time they’ve sponsored DConf, and we are thankful for their continued support. They are also the sponsors of the Symmetry Autumn of Code, an annual event that, since 2018, has provided experience to emerging programmers while enhancing the D ecosystem. We couldn’t be more excited to bring DConf to London once again with Symmetry’s support.
