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 fourth edition of the D Summer School will take place between July 4th and July 25th 2022. Classes are held physically, but we will livestream and record them for folks that are not in Bucharest but wish to participate. 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 contribute to the language and submit bug-fixing PRs to core D language repos. In the final week of the summer school we'll strongly encourage students to begin working at a bug-fix for one of the bootcamp issues posted on the bug tracker. The final day of the program will be marked by a hackathon where efforts will be concentrated on delivering PRs to upstream. Prizes will be awarded.
