dconf_logo_blogpostDConf 2016, the premier event for all things related to the D programming language, comes to Berlin this week, landing in the capital from May 4th to 6th. DConf is hosted by the D Language Foundation, and Sociomantic Labs is proudly sponsoring the event, with all registration proceeds (aside from conference-related costs) going to the D Language Foundation to help foster adoption of the D programming language. Whether you’re using D or are just curious to learn more about it, DConf will definitely bring something new to your table–even if that’s just new inspiration.

The D programming language, originally created in 2001 by Walter Bright and further developed in 2005 by Andrei Alexandrescu, is a high-level language that can interface directly with the operating system’s APIs and hardware. Bright and Alexandrescu’s main goal was to create a modern language that has the performance of C++ but with more convenience, simplicity and adaptability.

The language’s main event, DConf, was born in 2013 giving developers a forum to share best practices, new tools and techniques, and to spark conversations about potential issues or roadblocks. This year’s conference will have 18 speakers and 22 sessions, featuring live discussions, inspirational presentations and fun evening activities. Session topics range from closer examining D compiler internals to how D coding was used in the video game Quantum Break. See here for the full lineup.

In case you’re not able to attend DConf in person, each session will be live-streamed for you above and on Sociomantic’s Facebook page. In addition, the conference will be live-tweeted over at @DLangConf, and it’ll even be possible for you to directly interact with each speaker via Twitter, using the hashtag #askDConf.

If you have any questions, please contact the D Language Foundation at dconf2016@digitalmars.com or simply Tweet directly to @DLangConf or @D_Programming.

We are looking forward to the biggest #DConf yet, and hope to see you all this Wednesday–either in person or virtually.
