Is it possible to have the power and efficiency of C++, but in a much easier to use form? Walter will contrast C++ and D and show how, with D, one can achieve the same or better results with much less complexity and with greater reliability, without sacrificing performance.


Walter Bright’s first major program was the groundbreaking wargame Empire. He then became interested in compilers and computer languages. He’s written compilers for ABEL, Pascal, C, C++, Java, Javascript, and now D. His extensive experience writing C++ compilers and well over a decade being on the front lines of doing C++ customer support is an ideal background for improving on the language.
