One of the best ways to get new programmers a flavour of the 
language is a playground.

Examples:

- Kotlin - http://try.kotlinlang.org/
- Haskell - https://tryhaskell.org/
- Ceylon - http://try.ceylon-lang.org/# (JVM lang by RedHat)
- Go - on the homepage
- Ruby - http://tryruby.org/
- Rust - https://play.rust-lang.org/


I know there is a D playground, but I can't remember the URL for 
the life of me.

Is it possible to host  or create a CNAME for the current 
playground at http://try.dlang.org or http://play.dlang.org/ ?

It is small things like this that can help newbies "discover" a 
language and goes a long way in adopting the language.

s/resurrect/bring to the front burner/ Last time Martin and I talked about it it was definitely on his radar to scale it up for delivery, but understandably he has a bunch more urgent things to tend to. -- Andrei
