About D

module helloworld;

import std.format;

string hello(const char[] s = "World") {
    return format("Hello, %s!", s);
}

D is a systems programming language with C-like syntax and static typing. It combines efficiency, control and modeling power with safety and programmer productivity. The language was developed originally by [Walter Bright] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Bright) and Andrei Alexandrescu since D version 2.

D is the culmination of decades of experience implementing compilers for many diverse languages and has a large number of unique features:

  • high level constructs for great modeling power
  • high performance, compiled language
  • static typing
  • evolution of C++ (without the mistakes)
  • direct interface to the operating system API's and hardware
  • blazingly fast compile-times
  • allow memory-safe programming (SafeD)
  • maintainable, easy to understand code.
  • short learning curve (C-like syntax, similar to Java and others)
  • compatible with C application binary interface
  • multi-paradigm (imperative, structured, object oriented, generic, functional programming purity, and even assembly)
  • built-in error prevention (contracts, unittests)

The D Language Foundation is the organization devoted to developing and advancing the D language.

A tremendous learning opportunity to explore the depth of your own knowledge

Exercism is fantastic in learning new languages but that is not the extent of it. If you are a "more experienced" programmer you may have encountered impostor syndrome: the idea you don't really know what you think you know. Exercism lets you solve problems and put them in the space of open feedback which is a tremendous learning opportunity to explore the depth of your own knowledge. Even if you have been programming in a language for awhile it is worth checking into Exercism to see where you stand with current implementation practices.

Fun. Challenging. Interesting
