Thanks Andrei, the group exists for a long time actually. I did not want to advertise it until it is ready for what it was made... :) My idea when I made it was to gather professionals who use D *in production environments*, and eventually make this group a convenient place to post important news related to the D and its community, job announces, good ideas, etc. I also believe the logo i made is prety elegant and I am confident the group will constantly grow. Good thing about it is that technology professionals from other communities will be able to see D-related discussions, and hopefully get interested. ;) I see the D community steadily grow for last decade, and I humbly believe D is ready for enterprise use. Kind regards

A linkedin group for those who like that sort of thing is one thing, but D-related announcements, ideas, discussion, etc. belong here in the D newsgroup so they're available to everyone, not hidden behind linkedin's gates, and all in one unified place. We don't need to be fracturing the D community.

Nick, nobody said LinkedIn is going to be the *main place* for announcements. That would be, as you said, a bad idea. I doubt we will have any serious discussion there that can't be available on our news server. However, based from my LinkedIn experience with other FLOSS groups, it is very much possible that, for an example, job-announcements by some of the future recruiters, are going to be posted on LinkedIn only. You will not expect someone from a recruiting agency to go through various newsgroups and post announcements, do you? :) - I certainly would not.

Does that mean you shouldn't join if D only supports a product going to production, and isn't officially software used in the company?

Everybody is welcome (otherwise I would make the group invite-only), but the idea is to have more professionals there, than just enthusiasts who use D in some toy project... New D users will either become professionals after some time of evaluation and adoption, or they will give up D. I honestly do not think the LinkedIn group needs people who forget D after few weeks of trying. :) It is also misleading when a recruiter sees someone a member of the DDN who never wrote any serious piece of D code. Do you agree?

No argument with that.

That seems to be based on the false (but disturbingly common around drooling-HR-monkey circles) myth that a candidate with, for example, 10*X amount of experience in language Y is better than a candidate with X experience in each of 10*Y languages. Or at least it would seem to help propagate that myth. HR-morons have this retarded idea that all programming langauges are completely different from each other and have very little transferrable skills, which of course, any real programmer knows to be an obvious load of complete bullshit. Besides, 9 tmes out of 10, the only thing those mouth-breathers in HR bother to look at is degrees (which, of course, is even more retarded).
