digitalmars.D.announce - Write for the D Blog!

That's not from a lack of trying. I am in a dry spell with my own 
writing at the moment. I've got two posts in progress that 
shouldn't be difficult to write, but the words haven't been 
coming out the way I want them to nor as easily as they usually 
do. One is the next post in the GC series (I'm currently on my 
fifth revision) and the other is the first in a Sociomantic 
profile. I'll finish them eventually and my dry spell will pass, 
but until then, I need backup!

My usual approach to drum up guest posts is to contact people 
directly as broad calls in the forums tend to come up empty. 
Thought I'd give it a go, though

If you've got something D-related you'd like to tell the world 
about, please let me know. It doesn't have to be a guest post -- 
project highlights, where you give me info about your project and 
I write the post, are also welcome. I'm open to ideas for other 
formats, too. Just drop me a line at aldacron gmail.com and let 
me know what you'd like to do.

Thanks!

Good to know, and thanks for trying.

I'll keep in mind, but nothing right now. But I want to say, that the fairly recent post about SARC moving to D was great stuff to read! It had so many links and viewpoints rarely mentioned, I was not even aware about them. The naval architecht viewpoint is a refresher! Morale of the story? I think that one should not be afraid to post there if he does not consider himself a "regular" programmer, because thats precisely what produces the best posts.

That’s nice to hear, thanks a lot! Update on that project: I have moved out from the laboratory and today I successfully transpiled the second real-world Pascal module. The next one requires more thought, as it’s interface and implementation are in separate files.

I appreciate that morale. There's definitely no reason to be shy, and Mike is a very helpful editor!

[...] I'm too busy to actually work on much right now, but if you're running short of material to post, what about this draft wiki article that I haven't been able to finish? https://wiki.dlang.org/User:Quickfur/Compile-time_vs._compile-time It's pretty much ready except for some details that need to be updated (that I'm sorry to say I haven't had time to get around to). You can freely copy/adapt/etc. whatever you need from this article to throw together a blog post. Just throwing it out there. T -- Живёшь только однажды.

Hmm, maybe I should do a write up some time about signatures and their superiority to classes for OOP abstraction. Would be a great way to drum up support for a DIP.
