Here is the announcement of the talk that I just sent out: ============================================================ ACCU: Wednesday, December 8 - Andrei Alexandrescu, "Three cool things about D" When: Wednesday, December 8, 2010 Topic: Three cool things about D Speaker: Andrei Alexandrescu Time: 6:30pm doors open 7:00pm meeting begins Where: Symantec VCAFE building 350 Ellis Street (near E. Middlefield Road) Mountain View, CA 94043 Map: <http://tinyurl.com/334rv5> Directions: VCAFE is accessible from the semicircular courtyard between Symantec buildings <http://tinyurl.com/2dccgc> Cost: Free More Info: <http://www.accu-usa.org> The D programming language is sometimes traditional and sometimes innovative, but mostly it's all around a cool language to code in. This talk substantiates that claim by focusing on three hot topics: program correctness, generic programming, and concurrency. No prior knowledge of D is necessary - you'll even see "hello, world", just with an unexpected twist. Andrei Alexandrescu coined the colloquial term "modern C++", used today to describe a collection of important C++ styles and idioms. His eponymous book on the topic, Modern C++ Design (Addison-Wesley, 2001), revolutionized C++ programming and produced a lasting influence not only on subsequent work on C++, but also on other languages and systems. Andrei's work has garnered appreciation in both industrial and academic circles through is work on C++ and on Machine Learning applied to natural language. Since 2006, Andrei has been second-in-command to Walter Bright, the D programming language inventor and initial implementer. Andrei co-designed many important features of D and authored a large part of D's standard library, as well as the recent book "The D Programming Language". Andrei holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Washington and a BS in Electrical Engineering from University "Politehnica" Bucharest. He works as a Research Scientist for Facebook. Andrei has set up a Facebook RSVP page for this talk at <http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=142541435798096> Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge. --------- The ACCU meets monthly. Meetings are always open to the public and are free of charge. ============================================================ If you would like to receive announcements about the Silicon Valley ACCU talks (which are generally not on D), just e-mail me to be added to the list. The list of talks are available at: http://accu-usa.org/ Ali

I am dragging some C++ (and C) people from where I work. I am looking forward to meeting other D people too. Perhaps we will start a loosely once a month meeting, which should become "The Bay Area D Interest Group" or something like that. :)
 P.S. Will you be around by any chance?

Yes, Yes! I hope you will bring a pen to sign my Andrei Alexandrescu books... ;) Ali
