D Fibers

Ali will present a shorter version of his DConf 2016 talk:

   http://dconf.org/2016/talks/cehreli.html

D's fibers (coroutines in other languages) are not a part of the 
language but a feature implemented by the D runtime.

This talk should be fairly accessible to new programmers even without a 
CS background as it will explain the function call stack as well as 
context registers, concepts necessary to understand how fibers are 
useful at all.

As always, bring all other D questions and comments...

Ali Çehreli has been working with C, C++, and D in Silicon Valley since 
1996. He is the author of the book "Programming in D", a board member of 
The D Language Foundation, and an organizer of DLang and ACCU meetup 
groups in Silicon Valley.

[Mengü is wishing that we will manage to record the meeting.] Related, we tried to use the very fancy equipment that's in the exact meeting room that we will be using. The audio was on and off, with about 50% success rate. We fixed it by powering down one of the fancy microphone thingies. To repeat, in my experience, recording meetings is not a solved problem yet. :) Ali

Might I suggest a backup mechanism, just in case the "fancy equipment" doesn't work. Something as simple as setting up a smart phone or camcorder. If it's needed, then you at least have the video/audio. I've used google hangouts to broadcast/record all our Boston meetings and haven't had a problem yet. And as you will see next Sunday, we don't have any special equipment! The quality is super-low, but low-quality is better than not recording :) Even if you just have audio, you can later "re-play" the slideshow to match what was being said so people can follow along. The audio dialog, especially for questions, is what I think most people are interested in. -Steve

Nice. I won't be there, but I really liked the talk about multitasking you gave at DConf 2016. I never heard of coroutines before it, so it pretty much blew my mind how easily you can iterate on several trees (simultaneously) with them.
