digitalmars.D.announce - D Developers Conference

It's been about a month, so it's time for another update and reminder 
about the up coming D conference.  I'm pleased at the number of people 
that have registered.  We're going to have quite a crowd (though will 
also have enough space not to be crowded).

Since the last update I've arm-twisted, er.. talked, several additional 
speakers.  Here's the complete list:

   Andrei Alexandrescu    To Be Announced
   Brad Anderson          DSource
   Walter Bright          To Be Announced
   Don Clugston           Generating Truly Optimal Code with a
                          Metaprogramming Library
   Sean Kelly             Tango
   Kirk McDonald          Pyd: Connecting D and Python
   Gregor Richards        The D Development Stack: Life Above the
                          Compiler
   Benjamin Shropshire    Template Meta-Program Parser Generator
   Cristian Vlasceanu     Anatomy of a Debugger

For more information, head over to the website.  I added a FAQ after the 
last posting to capture some of the questions and the answers to them.

As before, if you will be attending and haven't yet registered, please 
click on the registration link.  There isn't an entrance fee or anything 
like that, but I do need to get a fairly accurate count of who will be 
attending.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all there.  Mark your calendars for 
August 23 and 24, 2007.

If you have specific questions, concerns, or whatever, feel free to send 
me mail: braddr puremagic.com.

Later,
Brad

   Benjamin Shropshire    Template Meta-Program Parser Generator

I have expanded my topic a bit to include the techniques used in the parser generate and some other meta-programming stuff I've done. I guess that make the topic more like: "Meta-programming techniques in D: how to not code something ten times"

Sorry, but this sounds like what any first-year student would present after the class "Intro to C++ STL". I'd like the phrase "Template Meta-Program Parser Generator" to be included in the heading. IMHO, it's way more selling. And interesting. Maybe "Template Meta-Program Parser Generator, notes and observations by the developer", or some such? Or insights, experiences, etc. The casual observer would get the impression that such a (cool) thing doable in D in the first place, and one would presume the speaker would tell about the hard things and what was easy. Which ought to interest almost anybody.

Good point. I guess I need to work on the title some. However as I work on the presentation (and on some of the stuff feeding it) I am finding that the parser generator isn't really the main topic. The topic is the techniques D allows for compile time abstraction. I might be able to fold some of the other stuff back into the parser and make it a central example. Hmm. I'll have to think about this.

Hmm. Will you record those speeches? And would you be able to publish them on google video/ youtube or just make them downloadable from digitalmars website? Not everyone may be there, but surely most of the absent ones would love to watch those speeches. KeYeR
