Next time you come over to the Old World, why not fly back a day later. Then a few of us might get together. A mini D-meeting wouldn't hurt. It could be interesting and fun!

Nor would a MiniD meeting.

It would hurt me. On the inside. Because I wouldn't be there.

The ACCU people were very nice to me. They liked the talk I gave, and even suggested that next year have a "D track" and even a D tutorial on tutorial day. Andrei was also there and gave a presentation on his new range design. The next ACCU doesn't get organized until the fall, but it would be fun to have a bunch of D'ers there so we can meet and work together.

Two years ago there was little mention of D. Mostly only Andrei mentioned it in one of his C++ related talks. This year I noticed there was lot of D on speakers slides, and some talk about it too. I think it would be an excellent idea to have some sort of general D talk at the ACCU next time.

During my talk, I asked for a show of hands on who had heard of D. As far as I could tell, everyone raised their hand (about 60 attended the talk). I asked who had actually done some coding in D, and perhaps a dozen raised their hand. I thought that was a very impressive result! I'm also getting emails from people who are trying out D after attending the conference.
