The time to start preparing submissions for DConf 2018 has come! 
The event is scheduled for May 2-5 in Munich, Germany. As with 
the 2017 edition, three days of talks are planned, followed by a 
Hackathon on the last day.

Deadline details can be found on the DConf home page [1]. As a 
bonus, Andrei did a brief interview for the D Blog [2], where he 
explains how we wound up in Munich this time around and what to 
expect.

Would love to hear someone talk about o/s kernel development in D, and their experiences/thoughts about how D helps/hinders development of that kind. e.g: https://github.com/PowerNex/PowerNex

my useless advice to those speaking at the conference... please...no fanboy talks ..like that which comes out of google, about go. no multicolored, fluffy toys on stage, that makes me feel like i'm in kindergarden (i'm just gunna puke!). A willingness to be critical...will gain peoples attention, will encourage people to find solutions, and will help D evolve. First 5 minutes...get me there, or you'll lose me. Be prepared to ignore everything I just said...but at your own peril ;-)

I don't think DConf fits that description. (Past DConf presentations are all recorded and should be available online e.g. at YouTube.)

Of course nothing of that sort but you have to tolerate emcee Dylan's purple outfit, especially the shoes! :o)
 A willingness to be critical...
There has been many experience reports where D's shortcomings, bugs, etc. were reported but they were almost always followed with something like "we couldn't have done any of this without D." :)

Good advice... Can't wait for your presentation... ;) Ali

There's a purple beast in Dylan, just dying to get out...

Sadly, if I gave a talk, after the first 5 minutes, there'd be nobody left to listen ;-) I would like to see Chuck Allison talk about the experiences of students approaching D. I think that would be really worthwhile - or even yourself for that matter, given your strong interest in this area. Technical stuff is good and helpful, but I like to know about peoples experiences too...that's what really interests me the most, and should be at the core of any language design. So somebody examining D from this perspective could be really insightful to those contributing to the language. It's really critical that D remain accessible to newcomers, or its' replacement is just around the corner.

For convenience, two talks by Chuck: http://dconf.org/2014/talks/allison.html http://dconf.org/2015/talks/allison.html and one by one of his students: http://dconf.org/2015/talks/gubler.html Ali

Ahh.. the enthusiasm of youth...those were the days... I think Eric's always going to look back on this video and ask himself..why did I say that.("..grease that barrier of entry into D.."). I'm stil trying to visualise that...but it's just not working for me.
