A simple demonstration using D to bare-metal program and ARM Cortex-M microcontroller. Full description with pictures and even a video can be found here: https://github.com/JinShil/stm32f42_discovery_demo/blob/master/README.md

I know, random rectangles on a screen is not all that remarkable, but there's quite a bit of work that needs to be done before one can write their first pixel.
* Minimal D runtime
* Memory-mapped IO features
* Clock and flash memory configuration
* Software initialization (data and bss segments)
* SPI driver to configure the external LCD controller
* Internal parallel LCD controller configuration
* Hardware random number generator

EVERYTHING is in D. I've had this project on the back burner for a while, and the Hackathon gave me the excuse I needed to get it done. I didn't put a lot of effort into the code because I just wanted to get something working to prove some ideas I had, and show that D has some potential in this domain.

I hope you find it interesting.  Ask me anything.
