Hello,

I've known D for about two weeks right now, and I kind of like it, a 
lot, but, I had a lot of trouble figuring out how to set up a 
programming environment. I mean, there were a few choices but some were 
abandoned, some things were only for D1(tango??) and others were so bug 
ridden that I could not really use without wanting to punch a hole in a 
wall every 10 minutes :P. Anyway, I did manage to set up a satisfactory 
programming environment with programmers notepad.

I know I'm not the best programmer here by a long shot, but I still like 
to support D so I made a video tutorial on how to set it up:

I've set up a basic SDL project with a little help of Derelict, I think 
I'll be making more tutorials in the future, It'll be about simple 
things like, programming a particle system in d or maybe a simple ray 
tracer. Don't have anything planned out yet, But whatever, I can think 
ahead later! Hope you find my video useful.

Well, for D2 I use VisualD with MS Visual Studio Shell (free stripped down version of Visual Studio). Being C++ convert I find it very comfortable, plus nice debugging experience and profiler support built-in. Take a look: http://dsource.org/projects/visuald

For an editor I can recommend E, it's bascailly a TextMate copy for Windows: http://www.e-texteditor.com/ . It supports TextMate bundles and there's a D bundle available. -- /Jacob Carlborg
