digitalmars.D - Kitchener Wants You...r programmer friends who don't know D

TDPL is entering a review stage where a collection of coders from all 
walks of programming life will have one month to submit feedback that 
will shape the final version of the book.

The book has been blessed with feedback from people who already know D 
or are otherwise versed enough with languages. It would be great to 
complement that with a few programmers who are intermediate or 
experienced, use some other language, and want to learn D. Their input 
would be very valuable because the current set of reviewers and myself 
find it difficult to look at the content with a virginal eye.

If you have friends who fit that profile, please forward this to them 
and ask if they'd want to be part of TDPL. There may be a meager stipend 
involved, probably worth a good dinner for two at a decent restaurant. 
(But clearly being in this for the money would be frustrating.)


Thank you very much,

Andrei

I would be interested in reviewing the book. I have a mostly Web-Dev/PHP
background, and i'm trying to bring D into my organization on a small scale
for a start. Do you think i my inputs will help?

In any case, good luck with the book. I, for one, am waiting for it.

Regards,
Adil Baig

We (two computer science students from Switzerland) are interested in
reviewing too. We both know Java and Ruby and have had to write some
code in C++ too, but didn't like it a lot. Therefore we are very curious
about D.

Thomas Ritter and Ferdinand Niedermann
