This. If Facebook is truly interested into D success, hiring some
programmers to work on DMD/Phobos full-time is best thing that can
possibly be done. But as far as I understand management is not yet ready
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.
