for such investment.


Facebook is unique (for its size and impact) in that it doesn't hire for a team, project, or specific position. Instead, it hires for the generic position "Software Engineer". Once in, the company has a policy of high internal mobility that gives people a lot of leeway in what they work on.

This means there's no guarantee one would work in or on D upon hiring. That said, since recently there are too many D internal projects for me to oversee so if anything I'm lacking headcount.

Things happen organically here. The best way to increase Facebook's involvement in D is to hire more people interested in D.
