One interesting anecdote: somebody in a financial services
company gave an
account of giving D a try as a way to prototype something

rewrite it later in a more conventional language. The
prototype went straight
into production, and they are happy with it. The C interop
was important for
them to have made this possible.
It was interesting, because it is a serious company where
people don't by any
means have a hacker mentality, and it was one more point at
variance with the "I
am a java programmer but do all my personal projects in D"
narrative, and also
because this particular kind of company is exactly the sort of
second wave early
adopter one wants to have.
(I hope I represented this accurately, and tried to make this
as vague as
possible whilst still keeping it useful since people might not
want the details
of what they do being public).
I'd like to invite this fellow to propose a case study
presentation at Dconf 2015. Can someone please forward this to
him, or put him in contact with myself or Andrei?
I will dig his card out unless Kingsley gets there first. (Let
me know if so). Laeeth
