Back when I was learning D, I learned from every resource I could 
find: I read the canonical Programming in D e-book by Ali 
Çehreli, The D Programming Language by Andrei Alexandrescu, and 
even some of Adam D. Ruppe’s D Cookbook. Still, this wasn’t 
enough at the time, so I also read through most of this website’s 
docs and joined the IRC channel to bug people as much as they’d 
let me.

It was about that time that I checked Derek Banas’s YouTube 
channel to find a tutorial covering D. Derek Banas is well known 
for creating long-form programming videos (usually an hour or 
more) that cover the most essential aspects of major programming 
languages in a fast but accessible format. He didn’t have a video 
at the time, so I kindly left a comment and forgot about it: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzeE8py1LGI&lc=Ugh2w7hQ82S2UngCoAEC (see
highlighted comment).

Well, I’m excited to share that Derek Banas has just posted a 
lengthy D tutorial (90 minutes) on his YouTube channel. I have no 
idea if I actually had any influence or not (probably not), but 
I’m excited nonetheless that this community has one more 
qualitative resource for beginners to learn D. D taught me a lot, 
including some of the more advanced concepts available to 
programming languages, and I’m really excited that now it’ll be 
easier for more people can learn these concepts, too.

It's a good thing that D is becoming more public (I hope.) However there were a few mistakes in the explanation of mixins.

You should point it out in the comment section, Derek is pretty quick receiving feedbacks.
