Dear D community, 

it is our pleasure to announce that the first Tango Conference will take
place in Torun, Poland in September. The dates have been set to 26th to
28th (friday through sunday). 

Conference program includes both talks and sessions such as a game
development panel and a concurrency workshop. Although it is a Tango themed
conference, it should be highly interesting for the D community at large. A
couple of the program spots will be decided upon after the first
registrations as that will tell us more about which topics interest you the
most. The complete program will be announced at that point.
 
There will be a small fee to cover drinks and meals. 

More information about the conference can be found from the following link:

Very good.
I have seen the page says something about 100 university students learning D
(and Tango), surely they use some teaching aids, etc, where can I find such
documentation (I presume it's free)? I have already taken a long fruitless look
at the university site.

Bye,

Most teaching materials at the univ are made available through the Moodle system - only for students having accounts at the university. I've asked the lecturer about the slides/notes and am awaiting an answer :) -- Tomasz Stachowiak http://h3.team0xf.com/ h3/h3r3tic on #D freenode

I don't think there's always a reason (ie to close the information), it is just a function of the teaching software which the students probably also use to turn in papers and excercises. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

I believe the Moodle system isn't used to restrict access to resources per se, as many lecturers put their teaching materials on their websites as well/instead. Moodle allows tutors to (amongst other features) keep track of which students are enlisted to their courses, perform online quizes and share resources with students. It will then highlight what the new resources are (personally for each student) and which are useful for a particular section of the course. There's no univ rule that says that teachers should not share their resources, it's just that Moodle is usually a convenience. -- Tomasz Stachowiak http://h3.team0xf.com/ h3/h3r3tic on #D freenode

I'd like to second Lars Ivar's invitation on behalf of team0xf who 
co-organize the conference - since it will take place at our university :)

I'd like to specifically address anti-Tango, pro-Phobos people. This 
will be the right place and time to state your issues with Tango. Some 
Phobos people are coming - including the ever-loved template madman - 
downs, so you won't be left alone, should a battle occur ;)

I'm also personally hoping to get together with D folks interested in 
gamedev, exchange experience and perhaps team up to create a cool game 
or game creation tools in D.

Last, but not the least, there will be a lot of time after the 
conference hours to sit in pubs/restaurants and chat about anything D- 
and Tango-related.

See you soon!

What are the plans for providing presentation material and recorded video of what happens at the conference? I'd love to go, but can't. I look forward to reviewing what went on at the event.
