Secure & Fast Programming Using D

Write fast. Read fast. Run fast.

“D is a multi-paradigm system programming language that combines a wide range of powerful programming concepts from the lowest to the highest levels. It emphasizes memory safety, program correctness, and pragmatism.” - Ali Çehreli, Programming in D, 2018


The first edition of the D Summer School will take place between June 17th and July 4th 2019, at the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest. The aim of the program is to introduce students to the basics of the D programming language offering insights on key idioms and focusing on modern programming techniques.

Activities will take place during three intensive training sessions per week that will enable students to deliver a project at the end of the summer school. The final day of the program will be marked by a hackathon where efforts will be concentrated on finishing the aforementioned project, prizes being awarded to the best implementations.


In order to apply, you need to solve this assignment by 23:55, June 1st 2019. Afterwards we will evaluate your submissions and announce the selected participants.
