digitalmars.D - I'll do a IAmA on reddit 2013/10/02 (tomorrow) at 9:15 AM PST

Hello,


I'll do a http://www.reddit.com/r/iama tomorrow morning. The draft title 
is "I am a member of Facebook's HHVM team, a C++ and D pundit, and a 
Machine Learning guy. Ask me anything!"

I assume there will be a fair amount of D-related questions. I'm hoping 
to benefit from air support from you all.


Wish me luck!

Air support is good, but I'm pretty sure those asking questions much prefer to get a direct response from the one doing the IAMA. Also try to answer the hard ones, it seams that gets you lot of RL karma.

Looking at other IAMA's it is pretty common that initial question gets answered mostly/only by actual IAMA subject but further discussion extends quite far from there ;)

I think he just meant a link post in /r/programming to notify people there.
