As some of you might know, I've been working on a D book over the last few months. It is now available as "coming soon" on the publisher's website:


I was hoping to have it finished in time for the D conference, but the publisher thought that was too soon to be realistic and it is looking like they are right... right now we believe it will be available in the summer.

Anyway, the topics I talk about include:

* Phobos, including Ranges
* Testing (both static and run time), documentation, and error handling
* Reflection and code generation
* All kinds of fun with structs
* Integration with other languages and environments
* Using some third party libraries

and some more. My goal is to act as a nice complement to Andrei's book, not to repeat it, so while I do cover a lot of language features, I try to do them in the context of bigger picture tasks. So hopefully, the books can go together and reinforce each other.

Looks great. I understand the effort and dedication of writing a technical book, it's not a small thing. I'll definitely be buying a copy when released. In fact i can't wait. :)
