be interesting (maybe not relevant to D but anywho):

When Herb gave a talk at NWCPP not long ago about C++0x, Walter's questions
and comments were priceless.
Herb asks "would you expect this [messy-looking but seemingly optimal c++
loop] to be faster, or this [nice clean looking c++0x code that you might
think has lots of overhead]".   Walter raises his hand and says something
like "the c++0x version should definitely be faster".   Herb seems to think
maybe he's just guessing what the punch line is, but Walter follows up with
"Sure, because in the C++0x version you end up using using integer
indexing, which is much easier for the compiler to optimize, while the
'optimal c++' version uses pointers."  That was the right answer.   Could
be me misreading his reaction, but it almost seemed to me like Herb didn't
know why his C++0x code was faster than his C++ code.

Not to put Herb down too much, he did put on a great talk.  He's an
excellent presenter and communicator.

Any new D talks that took place in the last year or so?

I gave a couple of public and private talks (NWCPP/Silicon Valley, Riverbed Software) but they weren't recorded. There are a couple more D-related events next year. One is a summer school in Elba in a star-studded company (after you set me aside): http://laser.inf.ethz.ch/2012/. There is one more event in Seattle early next year that I'm not allowed to make public yet. That doesn't have much to do with D, but as of late I can't get to give a talk on much without being spontaneously asked about D. We're mulling over the possibility of a D conference, but this is ante-preliminary. Andrei

How about audio podcasts?? It might be something more reachable. Recently I discovered Software Engineering Radio, http://www.se-radio.net/ For example, here is Simon Peyton Jones<http://research.microsoft.com/%7Esimonpj/>talking about Haskell. Pretty good stuff: http://www.se-radio.net/?s=Simon+Peyton+Jones&submit=Find Maybe they could do an episode with Walter or you talking about D? --20cf307ca62c89aead04b261db2f Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable <br><br><div class=3D"gmail_quote">On Sun, Nov 20, 2011 at 4:32 PM, Andrei = Alexandrescu <span dir=3D"ltr">&lt;<a href=3D"mailto:SeeWebsiteForEmail erd= ani.org">SeeWebsiteForEmail erdani.org</a>&gt;</span> wrote:<br><blockquote= class=3D"gmail_quote" style=3D"margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc soli= d;padding-left:1ex;"> <div class=3D"im">On 11/18/11 10:44 PM, Caligo wrote:<br> <blockquote class=3D"gmail_quote" style=3D"margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1p= x #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"> Any new D talks that took place in the last year or so?<br> </blockquote> <br></div> I gave a couple of public and private talks (NWCPP/Silicon Valley, Riverbed= Software) but they weren&#39;t recorded.<br> <br> There are a couple more D-related events next year.
