Wow, only a couple more months until dconf, can't wait to see everyone 
again! If you haven't booked yet, the early bird window is closing!

Want a beerconf T shirt? We know you do.

Check out the [wiki article](https://wiki.dlang.org/Beerconf).



As always, I'm interested in having people present some topic. If you 
have something you want to reserve a time for, please send me a message 
in any of the channels (here, email, discord, slack, etc.) and I'll make 
sure to announce it.

Last month was a nice Q&A session with Mike talking about the IVY 
system. Thanks to him for coming on and sharing!

Cheers! ­čŹ║

Just a quick update for this weekend's Beerconf, YuQian Zhou has contacted me about presenting on a new design pattern called DDIFI - Decoupling Data Interface From data Implementation. Presented as a clean and general solution to multiple inheritance. There is demo code for both C++ and Java, and the hope is that D can find use for it. YuQian has agreed to join us for Beerconf and show the presentation on Saturday at 19:00 UTC! I'll ping again this week to remind everyone, and ping again when this presentation starts. See you then! -Steve

A reminder that this is happening in 2 days! YuQian has asked that I post the abstract for the talk being given. A reminder that the talk is on Saturday at 19:00 UTC. See you there! -Steve A new design pattern DDIFI (Decoupling Data Interface From data Implementation) as a clean and general solution to multiple inheritance Traditionally in class based OOP languages, both the fields and methods from the super-classes are inherited by the sub-classes. However this may cause some serious problems in multiple inheritance, e.g. most notably the diamond problem. In this paper, we propose to stop inheriting data fields as a clean and general solution to such problems. We first present a design pattern to cleanly achieve multiple inheritance in C++, which can handle class fields of the diamond problem exactly according to the programmersÔÇÖ intended application semantics. It gives programmers flexibility when dealing with the diamond problem for instance variables: each instance variable can be configured either as one joined copy or as multiple independent copies in the bottom class. The key ideas are: 1. decouple data interface from data implementation; 2. in the regular methods implementation use virtual property methods instead of direct raw fields; and 3. after each semantic branching add (and override) the new semantic assigning property. Then we show our method is general enough, and also applicable to any OOP languages that natively support multiple inheritance (e.g. C++, Python, Eiffel, etc.), or single inheritance languages that support For example, in the diamond inheritance problem of <Person, Student, Faculty, and ResearchAssistant>, we want to achieve the ideal application semantics: each ResearchAssistant should only have: * one (joined) copy of `_name` field, but * two (separated) different address fields: - one `_student_addr` ("dorm") as Student to takeRest(), and - one `_faculty_addr` ("lab") as Faculty to doBenchwork() Our new design pattern can achieve this. Also it works for the current D! although it's a bit hackish. With default interface methods it will be better (less convoluted).

YuQian also would like to mention that the work presented is patent pending as disclosed in the original paper pdf: https://github.com/joortcom/DDIFI/blob/main/ddifi.pdf -Steve

Hi everyone, I recorded this presentation and put a video about it on youtube (with YuQian's permission). If you missed it during beerconf you can watch it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ck0SgLKNcc -Steve

I have recorded the talk, and I will post a video at some point. But it's just the talk that was presented. -Steve

most the weekend is just a handful of random people coming and going at random times and talking about random stuff more of just like a online hang out than anything formal.
