was only about 15 pages.... a lot for two "recipes" ("hello
world" and "handling interrupts"), but certainly not a

I gotta writing my dconf talk next though that will go a bit
more into it, but again, with a focus on druntime functions
more than on how the hardware actually works.
I assume it has standard PACKT format ("give it a go hero"
etc)? Bought it and waiting for a release :) Congratz!
yeah, it starts with a list of steps, then usually shows code
(not always a complete program but usually), then some talk
about how it works and covering details.
the code should also be available as a separate download for
each thing so you can run it more easily and play with it that
Everything sounds great, really can't wait. Coming from C++ I am
really interested in resource management. I still can't find
myself in non-deterministic d-tor / GC world (and recent
